Jessica Carvalho MorrisWelcome to our website! Here you will find information about our International and Foreign LL.M. programs.

The University of Miami School of Law is strongly committed to its international programs and we welcome applicants from around the world to join our legal community. Our International Graduate Law Programs include about 60 students from 20 or more different countries around the globe. The University of Miami School of Law has graduated over 1,300 alumni who are living and working in more than 90 countries around the world. UM also has a select group of American Law students who have chosen to focus their studies in Inter-American, International or Ocean and Coastal Law.

Because these LL.M. programs at UM are relatively small and selective, we are able to provide a tailor-made program that focuses on the individual student, where the student creates a course of study that matches his or her own academic and professional goals. The students all graduate with an excellent foundation in the law and a broader perspective about the world in which we live.

Our faculty members take great pride in developing good working relationships with students, and are available to discuss course materials as well as questions related to the study of law in general. Some of our students are selected to serve as research assistants to our international faculty. In addition, some students may apply and be appointed by the Dean as a Visiting Associate Professor for one year after the completion of the LL.M. program. Our LL.M. programs offer full time and part time options, as well as a seven-semester option for students in their third year of law school.

Students choose Miami for a variety of reasons, either for its location as the gateway between the United States, Latin America, Europe, and Asia, the faculty with focus in international law, our renowned library, or the individual attention provided by our office. Take a look at our admissions web pages and see for yourself!

The Office of International Graduate Law Programs is committed to assisting all prospective students with their inquiries and the application process. This web page is designed to answer questions about our LL.M. programs.
