LL.M. Programs

One world-class degree. Three program options. Endless customization.

 

Berkeley Law LL.M. (Master of Laws) is a general degree designed to prepare foreign lawyers for global practice. Our curriculum provides a strong foundation in the fundamentals of U.S. law while allowing for customization based on individual interests. Students can earn certificates of specialization in several areas of law, pursue eligibility to register for a U.S. bar exam, or complete a thesis.
