Professional track courses are intensive, three to six weeks in duration, and offered in sequence. 21 units, over two summers, are required for completion of the LL.M. degree, which allows students to meet the educational requirements to sit for the California Bar Examination.
New in 2015: Berkeley Law now offers a flexible start date for the professional track. Each summer students must attend at least three consecutive quarters, commencing in either Q1 or Q2. Students may attend all four quarters at no additional cost. Please note that you must commit to a start date upon confirming enrollment and may not change it, as that will serve as your official I-20 program start date.
Please note: students taking the public law Certificate of Specialization (regardless of scholarship status) must start in Q1, in order to take Administrative Law.
Scheduled course offerings for the 2015 summer term are shown below (subject to change).
