Each year, Cleveland-Marshall admits a limited number of students to our Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree program, which we offer to both domestic students who would like to pursue areas of law more in depth through rigorous research, and to international students who wish to learn the laws of the United States.
For students in the U.S., the LL.M. is a 24 credit hour, post-JD degree open to American students who have earned a JD degree from an ABA-accredited law school.
For international students, the LL.M. is a 24 credit hour program for students who have obtained a degree in law (.D., LL.B., or their equivalent) and who have passed an English proficiency test (TOEFL or IELTS).
For more information on the LL.M. for U.S. or international students, please see below or contact our office at:
