The programs

General LL.M.

As a student in the General LL.M. program, you'll create a one-year degree program around your particular research interest. If you're a lawyer educated outside the United States and want to use the LL.M. to qualify to sit for the New York Bar Examination, we encourage you to pursue a specially designed General LL.M. Professional program. We'll take into consideration your familiarity with other legal jurisdictions, and do our best to facilitate your transition into the U.S. legal system.

Criminal Law LL.M. Program

The Criminal Law LL.M. is one of the only post-professional programs in the United States devoted exclusively to the study of criminal law. In this unique program, you'll create an individual program of study in U.S., international and comparative criminal law.

In either program, you can choose to write a more extended piece of scholarly work under the guidance of a professor.
