For lawyers who want to refocus their legal career, develop an expertise in a substantive area, or update their professional credentials, a Master of Laws (LLM) degree from Washington University Law may be a perfect fit.

Washington University Law offers a customized LLM degree allowing lawyers to earn an advanced law degree with a focus of their own choosing. As an LLM student, they will consult with counselors from the Office of Graduate and International Programs (OGIP) and identify the best combination of courses to fit their individual career or enrichment goals. Candidates for the LLM degree must have graduated with a JD degree from an accredited U.S. law school.
