Pursuing an LL.M. in Advanced Legal Studies affords students a great deal of flexibility in choosing courses across the curriculum. In addition to the opportunity to engage in a broad-based course of study, students also may devote themselves to intensive research and writing projects.
Candidates in the Advanced Legal Studies program may choose to concentrate their work in one area rather than pursuing a more generalized course of study. Areas of specialization open to LL.M. candidates include business law, civil litigation, environmental law, estate planning, family and elder law, and labor and employment law.
