LLM & Graduate Admissions

The University of Illinois College of Law has a rich history in graduate-level education, with our Master of Laws (LLM) program being one of the oldest in the country. We also offer Master of Studies in Law (MSL), Doctor of the Science of Law (JSD), and Visiting Scholars programs.

Students in our graduate programs have access to the same internationally renowned faculty as our JD students, are exposed to a rich, diverse curriculum, and opportunities for professional training, and experience campus life at one of the premier research universities in the United States. Illinois Law graduate programs are designed to prepare students with or without any prior legal training to excel in their future professional careers.
