The professional track’s flexible format fits within our students’ lives while delivering the same Berkeley Law LL.M. degree. It is specifically designed for lawyers educated outside the U.S. who want an internationally renowned Berkeley Law degree but can’t leave professional or personal commitments for an entire standard academic year.
Students in our professional track complete courses during May through August, over two consecutive 10-or 13-week summer semesters, allowing students to return home to work and family in the year between. A rigorous curriculum including business law, intellectual property, and core U.S. law courses is taught by world-renowned Berkeley Law faculty who are leaders in their fields. Students may focus their studies to earn a Certificate of Specialization and/or to meet the requirements to become eligible to register for the California Bar Examination.
