About

Our online LLM programs are ideally suited for business lawyers and law graduates from around the world who are currently engaged in or interested in a business law career within government, industry, or private practice, and who wish to advance their expertise in several specialized concentrations without the expense or disruption of relocating to the United States for a traditional on-campus program. Please note, however, that the LLM programs that are offered entirely online will not by themselves permit the graduate to take a bar examination in the United States.
