Program Description:

The Transnational LL.M. program focuses on International and Comparative Law.  This advanced degree program is designed for law school graduates with a common law background.  Applicants with a civil law background interested in this topic are advised to apply to the General LL.M. for Foreign-Trained Lawyers (LL.M. in US Law), which allows students to take courses in the subject area: www.law.temple.edu/llm

The degree is 24 credits, including one in which a scholarly paper is produced.  The degree is often completed within two years, however, students are given four years to complete the requirements.  If you have not taken International Law, you will need to also during the program.  This course will not, however, count towards the 24 credits required to complete the degree.  

Students are required to study abroad during their degree studies.  You may choose to study at our Tokyo or Rome campuses, or may participate in a program outside of Temple University at one of our Semester Exchange Partner Schools abroad.  This requirement can be waived with previous study or work abroad experience.   

A required application includes:  

- one to two page personal statement
- one reference letter
- official law transcripts (received in a sealed envelope from university with English translation if    needed)
- $50 application fee
- resume
