Surrounded by business, government, nonprofit and cultural organizations, Georgia State Law provides an ideal environment for gaining practical experience and engaging in interdisciplinary research and collaboration, especially for those seeking an LL.M. (master of laws).
If you are seeking an LL.M. to enhance your practice opportunities, to qualify for careers in teaching or government service, or simply to broaden your legal horizons, our LL.M. program is right for you. It allows you to fine-tune your legal expertise in Health Law, Intellectual Property, Environmental and Land-Use Law, and general legal knowledge. If you are a foreign-trained lawyer, our program will allow you to apply to take the Georgia bar exam.
Our program is open to any law graduate (e.g., J.D., LL.B., B.L., B.A. in Law and Society) and is one of the most affordable anywhere.
All LL.M. Candidates
All LL.M. students, whether domestic or foreign, may concentrate in general studies or a number of specialized areas. Although students may pursue multiple concentrations, they may only receive one LL.M. degree.
If your law degree is from another country and you are “authorized to practice law” there, you may want to study in our “bar preparation track,” which would enable you to apply to take the Georgia bar exam upon completion of our two-semester program.
The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) or the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) are not required.
Students may pursue the LL.M. full or part time. Classes are on-site in our state-of-the-art building located in the heart of downtown Atlanta, whose Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport connects you with the world.
