The University of Pittsburgh School of Law Master of Laws (LLM) program for foreign law graduates provides lawyers who have completed a law degree outside the United States with an opportunity to study the common law legal tradition and the U.S. legal system.
The University of Pittsburgh offers a general LLM degree that gives students the freedom and flexibility to choose their courses from the law school’s full curriculum. Students can focus their course work on a particular field or take a generalized approach and incorporate multiple subject areas. With the exception of a pair of required courses for the LLM degree, students take courses side by side with Pitt Law’s JD students. The International Law Society also takes an active role in putting together social events for LLM and JD students to enable them to form relationships beyond the classroom.
