Justice for all

LL.M. Program

We take your education personally.

Loyola offers tailored LL.M degree programs for international students and for U.S. law school graduates seeking to take their education even further.

Louisiana is the only mixed jurisdiction state in the country, which means Loyola is one of just a few schools that can offer coursework in common and civil law. This will provide you with added flexibility in deciding where to practice—whether that’s in Louisiana, around the United States or almost anywhere in the world. But while you’re in school you will spend the year living in one of the most international and culturally diverse cities in the country: New Orleans.
