LL.M. Degree for Foreign Lawyers

The Duquesne University School of Law offers a Master of Laws LL.M. degree for candidates who have fulfilled the educational requirements for admission to the practice of law in a foreign country, and candidates attending a foreign institution with a joint LL.B./LL.M. degree agreement with Duquesne University School of Law.

The relatively modest size of the LL.M. program allows for students to receive individual attention within the friendly Duquesne community. The University's Office of International Programs offers extensive programs and comprehensive English as a Second Language (ESL) courses.

Study U.S. Law with U.S. Law Students

Duquesne Law offers both a General Curriculum and a Bar-Track Curriculum. Both provide opportunities to study and improve legal research, writing, and analytical skills in the context of United States law.

Before regular classes begin in the fall, Duquesne conducts a Summer Bridge Program for Foreign Law Students. The program is required for Bar-Track LL.M. students and General Curriculum students holding or pursuing a foreign law-related degree (as opposed to a law degree). The summer program is also recommended for students interested in exploring the U.S. legal system.
