Case Western Reserve University’s LLM program has been ranked among the best in the nation for academics and school experience.
The rankings were released on April 25 in International Jurist
, a twice yearly publication by the National Jurist
“Time and time again, we hear our LLM students talk about the value of their experience here. They become part of our legal academic family and feel very connected to one another and to our school,” said Professor Lew Katz, Director of Foreign Graduate Legal Studies. “We are honored to receive this formal recognition.”
Our LLM program is one of the oldest in the country. Students can chose from four different LLM degrees
: U.S. & Global Legal Studies, Intellectual Property Law, International Business Law and International Criminal Law. In addition, the law school offers a Summer Language and Law Institute -- an intensive four-week training experience before the LLM degree begins. The summer program gives students a month to introduce them to the practice and study of law and improve their English language skills before LLM classes begin.
The school also provides an opportunity for high-performing LLM graduates to transfer into the Juris Doctor (JD) degree program or earn a Doctor of Juridical Science
(SJD) degree, the highest research degree in law. The SJD is a two or three-year program.
