Washington University School of Law has partnered with the Tecnológico de Monterrey's Escuela de Gobierno y Transformación Pública (the Graduate School of Government and Public Transformation) to deliver a dual master's degree online. Tecnológico de Monterrey is the most prestigious private university in Mexico. It is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), and is a member of the European Consortium of Innovative Universities (ECIU).

Offered entirely online, the dual degree is for non-U.S.-trained lawyers who want to build their knowledge of international law, including legal practice in the U.S. and Latin America, but are not able to put their careers or personal commitments on hold. The degree features curricula from two top-ranked universities and live, online classes taught by distinguished faculty.

Graduates from this program earn a Master of Laws (LLM) in U.S. Law from Washington University School of Law, a top-20 American law school, and an LLM in International Corporate Law from Tecnológico de Monterrey,1 a university ranked No. 1 in Mexico and No. 7 in Latin America. The program can be completed in two to three years (24-36 months) on a full-time or part-time basis.

For information about the program in Spanish, visit the Law@Tec website.

1 Pending Secretariat of Public Education (SEP) approval, the degree conferred will be Master's in International Corporate Law - LLM. Current students receive a Master's of Transnational Legal Practice (MPJ).
