LL.M. Programs in the United States

The National Jurist has recently published its annual guide to American LL.M. programs. It is quite handy for prospective students. It surveys LL.M. programs across the United States, ranging from the ones with a particular focus in environmental law, health law, tax law, comparative law, and everything in between. The guide also lists the several LL.M. programs with no specific curricular focus--except, for some inexplicable reason, Yale's own general LL.M. program. I wonder why?
In any event, the guide remains a useful repository of helpful information for those for whom three years of law school is simply not enough!


  1. Thanks Richard, this is very useful data, I will make it available for my studnets who may be interested in pursuing graduate studies in the U.S.
    It would be very interesting to hear more about how US law professors feel about LLM programs in the US. Some of those programs accept more than 100 candidates!! It sounds as too much. I take graduate studies as an opportunity for interaction with cutting edge scholars and students from everywhere. The size of the program may be an important factor if that aim is important.

  2. Just because Martin mentioned the numbers: I believe the numbers are not the issue - the main part is how well (and if) these numbers are integrated into the student body, if they take part in the regular classes they can be better integrated than a LL.M. class of 10. (This is not to say Yale isn´t a well-ranked school).
