LL.M. in United States and Global Legal Studies, Certificates in Criminal Law, Intellectual Property, International Public Law, International Business Law and Health Law
The program gives foreign-trained attorneys firm grounding in American law, which enables them to become truly capable lawyers in today's global economy. With access to all of the school's 170 J.D. courses, students tailor curricula to their backgrounds and interests, sharing classes and activities with their American counterparts and participating in the full intellectual life of a Case Western Reserve law student.
In addition to regular courses, LL.M. students receive comprehensive instruction in U.S. legal research, writing, and analysis. Weekly workshops monitor their progress in research and writing, while regular seminars, covering international business transactions and human rights issues, and led by Cleveland-area lawyers, give students a practical view of the law.
Life outside the classroom is equally enriching. Each student makes fast friends with a mentor from the student body, who helps plan LL.M. social events and study groups. The LL.M. classes always form a close-knit community that becomes involved in law school activities, including Student Bar Association and the International Law Students Association.
