LLM Programs

The University of San Diego School of Law is a long-standing leader in graduate legal education.

Each year, the School of Law is pleased to welcome attorneys, judges, law professors and recent law school graduates from the United States and throughout the world into our Master of Laws (LLM) programs. The diverse curriculum and flexible LLM programs allow USD School of Law degree candidates to design a course of study suited to best meet their individual academic and professional development needs.

Please note that attorneys who received their legal education outside the United States are rarely admitted to an LLM program other than the Comparative Law program. Please see the LLM in Comparative Law program below. For further information or to arrange an appointment with an admission counselor, please contact the Office of Graduate and International Programs.
