If you’ve ever considered earning your Master of Laws, there is no better time than now, and no better place than Texas A&M University School of Law.
LL.M. students are fully integrated into the daily life of the School of Law, one of the fastest growing and most vibrant law schools in the nation. We are located in the heart of downtown Fort Worth, a magnet for Fortune 500 companies and a highly entrepreneurial city in its own right. Texas A&M University School of Law is at the epicenter of a thriving economy and remains focused on industries where legal jobs are in demand.
The LL.M. is an advanced law degree for students who have already earned a J.D. or its equivalent from a law school outside the United States. The LL.M. is intended for a wide range of students, including domestic students who wish to develop a specialization in a particular area of law and international students seeking an understanding of U.S. law and procedure, including those who may wish to sit for the Texas Bar Examination.
All Texas A&M LL.M. programs, both in residence and online, are fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. Additionally, these programs have obtained acquiescence from the American Bar Association (ABA).
Both the online and in-residence LL.M. programs have cohorts starting in Spring 2017.
LL.M. students are encouraged to attend and participate in all of our professional development, co-curricular, and outside speaker activities, as well as the many conferences and symposia sponsored by the School of Law.
In particular, LL.M. students are invited to become involved in our innovative Professionalism and Leadership Program (PLP)
. The PLP helps students work through the development of their professional identities and the acquisition of skills that are vital to the practice of law. For example, the PLP sponsors workshops throughout the academic year focusing on core lawyering and professionalism competencies, including effective communication, business and accounting acumen, mindfulness, leadership, and interpersonal skills.
The LL.M. program at Texas A&M University School of Law welcomes international students. For more information about visas, please visit the Texas A&M University International Student Services website
