Masters Degree in Law

Top 80 Master's Programs in Law 2017

Law

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

The discipline of law is broad and full of history. Students of law study the rules put in place by a society to govern human behavior. Law has many sub-fields, and it is a good idea for future law students to have a specialty of interest in mind before matriculating.

Master's Programs in Law. This course is one of only six in the country, and the only one in London and the South East. It gives you both a Qualifying Law Degree and exemption from the requirement to undertake the Legal Practice Course (LPC). The course is geared to professional practice, and you can start your training to become a solicitor as soon as you graduate. From the start of the course you will be given an introduction to the skills required by lawyers. This prepares you for the clinical experience in Years 3 and 4, where you will work with real clients on real cases, offering you invaluable experience which will make you more attractive to future employers. Fees are consistent throughout rather than increasing at the LPC stage, so the course offers a more accessible route to becoming a solicitor.

The LLM American Law Programme (for Non-U.S. Lawyers)

Boston University School of Law
Campus Full time September 2017 USA Boston

[+]

Foreign trained attorneys are increasingly called upon to handle the complex demands of their global clients -- clients whose cross-border interests implicate US law. The issues they face range far and wide: What’s the best legal structure for my company’s affiliate in the US? How does the First Amendment apply to the Internet? What liabilities does my company face if it lists on a US stock exchange? Will my company's merger violate US antitrust laws? To serve their clients or advise their companies, global lawyers must not only understand the substance of US law, they must also work effectively with their US-trained counterparts. They must understand US legal culture and how U.S. counsel are trained to "think," and they must possess highly polished legal English skills that allow them to communicate effectively, in writing and verbally. The LLM in American Law Program is specifically designed to prepare foreign lawyers for the challenge of global practice. In this program, students are fully-integrated into BU Law's JD classes, where they sit side-by-side with American students being trained in the tradition of US legal education. This means you will not only learn the substance of US doctrine in virtually any area of interest -- intellectual property, international business transactions, mergers and acquisitions, alternative dispute resolution, to name only a few -- but you will learn something equally as important: how US lawyers are trained to analyze legal questions and advocate on their clients' behalf. By the end of the year, we expect you... [-]
