The LL.M in International Law is a one-year degree program from Kimep University providing specialized knowledge of international law for legal and business practitioners engaged in cross-border legal transactions.


Kimep University created the LL.M in International Law recognizing the need for continuing legal education in the Kazakhstan market. 

The curriculum was developed to give students the opportunity to increase their level of practical skills while deepening their theoretical legal knowledge. Students at Kimep University acquire skills to read and interpret legal texts, critically examine the underlying policies of legal rules, and prepare written and oral arguments based upon correct reasoning. 

The curriculum weaves conventional courses generally found in LL.M courses around the world with those that deal with the particular legal regime of Kazakhstan that constitute a precondition for foreign direct investment.

The program is accredited by a European accrediting agency.

  • All teachers at the Law School have post-graduate degrees from foreign universities; knowledge of Kazakhstan, international and comparative law; and actively conduct research.
  • Evening and weekend classes that allow you to continue working while you study.
  • The program can be completed in one year.


The program is accredited by a European accrediting agency.
