completion of 24 units, or both degrees may be obtained by completing a total of 34
units of the required courses from each program. JD students from any ABA approved
law school may credit up to 12 units of qualifying courses toward these LLM degrees,
making it possible to complete either graduate law program in just one semester. This

areas of law practice. Finally, many of our LLM classes are offered in the evening

The professors brought theoretical and practical components to the classroom by relating
the material to their professional experiences. I've established a close circuit of
friends and colleagues through the vast and active alumni, and I grow professionally
every day as a result."
