The University of Cincinnati College of Law welcomes students and international attorneys from all countries to join our LLM Master of Laws in the US Legal System program.  We are a top 45 public law school and the 4th oldest in the US.  To date, we have welcomed students from 28 countries.  This year's class includes students from Italy, Nepal, Japan, Colombia, India, France, Kenya, Nigeria, Kyrgyzstan, Afghanistan, Russia, Greece and Brazil.  

At Cincinnati Law we are committed to a vision in which “[w]e strive to create a learning environment that inspires the pursuit of justice, cultivates diverse and innovative ideas about law in society, fosters collaborative relationships, and imparts the knowledge, values, and competencies needed to excel in a changing world.” Now more than ever we are obliged to educate students to enter a world where people are interconnected — beyond borders, across oceans, and with little regard for language barriers.

Experience and exposure to people and places outside of our own neighborhood is critical.  This is why our LLM program is so valuable and important.  We are cultivating citizens of the world!  Welcome to Cincinnati Law.  We are #CitizensoftheWorld and #YouAreWelcomeHere!
