Today’s interconnected world of business and law requires attorneys with global competency. A master of law (LL.M.) gives foreign-trained lawyers this competency.
“An LL.M. from a U.S. law school has become an important calling card for attorneys across the globe.”
— National Jurist (November 2012)
