All applicants to the Robert Traurig-Greenberg Traurig LL.M. in Real Property Development must have earned, separate to the requirements of the Joint J.D./LL.M. Program, a J.D. or LL.B. degree from a law school approved by the American Bar Association or an equivalent law degree from a foreign law school.
Applicants whose native language is not English are required to take the TOEFL exam. Unless special permission is obtained from the director, full-time students may matriculate only in the Fall semester. The campus-based program is not designed for the part-time student.
Selection is based on evidence of intellectual capacity, strength of the applicant's law school and professional records, and evidence of the applicant's commitment and ability to overcome difficulties in attaining specialized education and skills. Applications are reviewed and acted on promptly after all required documents are received.
How to Apply
Application to the University of Miami School of Law may be made through Miami Law's Master of Laws Programs Online Application or through LSAC's Service. (If using LSAC's Service, applicants must register and pay for the LSAC LL.M Credential Assembly Service[CAS] and Letter of Recommendation Service. Applicants must request LSAT scores separately from the CAS report.)
Students are generally full-time and should fulfill the degree requirements in a nine-month term. No outside employment is permitted during this period of study. If some unforeseen circumstance causes a student to leave the program prior to completion of the degree requirements, all requirements must be completed within three years of matriculation in order to earn the degree. No thesis is required. However, written papers will be required in various forms, including project reports, development plans, transaction and condominium documents, critiques and evaluations.
