Through Cincinnati Law’s LL.M Program, you will not only learn about the US legal system, you will find yourself immersed in American legal and academic cultures. You can sample from the wide range of opportunities offered to your JD-seeking peers and experience life in one of the country’s top destinations for young professionals, entrepreneurs and families.

Our nine-month LLM program also gives you the opportunity to design a course of study that meets your professional goals. Our graduates are better able to represent U.S. clients and more prepared for negotiations and litigation with U.S. parties.

We strongly encourage you to submit all application materials by March 15 of the year in which you wish to enroll.

You can also apply to the LLM program for free through Cincinnati Law. Contact us for details.
