From our LLM program for international lawyers—to global law and international human rights centers and concentrations. Discover what's next at Cincinnati Law.
At Cincinnati Law, we have a long history of engagement with issues related to international law.
In 1979, we became home to the first endowed institute at an American law school devoted to the study of international human rights—the Urban Morgan Institute for Human Rights. The Institute sends students around the globe to work on issues related to international human rights. You can find Morgan graduates in places like the State Department, the International Criminal Court, and numerous other organizations. Students also engage with scholarship through the Human Rights Quarterly.
In 2020, we launched the Cincinnati Center for the Global Practice of Law, which is designed to encourage, facilitate, and promote international engagement in all of the College’s activities.
We're also home to a tight-knit LLM Program in the U.S. Legal System. The LLM degree can be completed in as little as nine months, and with an 8:1 student-to-faculty ratio, our students benefit from increased, personalized support from professors. Graduates emerge fluent in the U.S. law system and ready to advance their careers.
Our tuition is one of the lowest for a U.S. LLM program, and we offer generous scholarships as well.
