The Institute for the Global Practice of Law at the University of Cincinnati College of Law is dedicated to the continuing education and training of experienced international lawyers. Established in 2010, the Institute seeks not only to increase the understanding of international law and business transactions, but to facilitate relationships among leaders in the global legal and business communities.

Executive Program in International Business Law

Central to the Institute's activities is the Executive Program in International Business Law, an intensive four-week program on cross-border lawyering. The program is designed for lawyers from countries other than the United States who are interested in U.S. Law and international business transactions. It is specifically designed for non-U.S. lawyers who want to better represent their U.S. clients, partner with U.S. lawyers in the representation of those clients, and negotiate or litigate opposite U.S. parties. Opportunities to forge and strengthen professional ties with law firms and companies in the Cincinnati area are an integral part of the program.

The University of Cincinnati College of Law is pleased to offer a program of study on the US legal system to practicing attorneys and law school graduates who received their legal education outside the United States.

The LLM program is designed to introduce internationally trained lawyers to the US legal system while also giving each student an opportunity to design a course of study at UC Law that best advances his or her professional agenda. Students who complete the program are better able to represent U.S. clients and more prepared for negotiations and litigation with U.S. parties.

The LLM program can be completed in as little as 9 months, although some students decide to spend up to two academic years in the program.

Scholarships Available

Upon submitting your application to the LLM degree program, please write to us via uclawllm@uc.edu to express your interest in a scholarship.

UC Law’s LLM Program Gives Students Training, Experience and Inspiration

Like other legal professionals from around the world, three new UC College of Law students came to the United States for advanced training and, just as importantly, inspiration.

“Studying law in the U.S. is like magic. It’s so difficult,” states Frinwi Achu, an LL.M. student from Cameroon.

LLM degree students can be practicing attorneys or recent law school graduates who will improve their English legal writing skills, develop an in-depth understanding of the U.S. legal process, and hone in on the particular areas of law that most interest them. Students will enjoy the opportunity to make lasting relationships with other international lawyers in the LLM program as well as students in the JD program, to work closely with our esteemed UC law faculty members, and to network with local lawyers, judges and business leaders.

UC Law LLM students generally complete the program in one academic year. The LLM degree program begins with an orientation and the first course--Introduction to Law--in August and concludes in May. During the course of the year LLM students are required to take two additional courses: The US Legal System and Legal Research and Writing for LLM Students.

With the advice and assistance of the LLM program director and other faculty, students will select the rest of their classes from UC law school's full range of course offerings. Doing so allows LLM degree students to study side-by-side with our JD students and to focus their studies on areas of the law that are most relevant to their careers. The UC College of Law curriculum includes the following areas of study, called professional pathways: Business and Entrepreneurship; Criminal; International; Innovation, Technology and Intellectual Property; Science, Health, and Environment; Public Interest; Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution; General and Small Practice.

We have scholarships available for qualified applicants.  Please write to us at uclawllm@uc.edu to express your interest in a scholarship and get more information regarding the scholarship application process.

The LLM program involves in-class dialogue about complex legal issues and substantial reading of sophisticated legal text. Therefore, if English is not your country’s primary language, you will be required to take and submit an exam that shows your English proficiency. Applicants with the following scores will be given preference: 1) TOEFL internet-based 90, computer-based 250 or paper-based 600; 2) IELTS 7.0 or 3) ELS completion of Level 112. Applicants with TOEFL scores of 85 and above will also be considered.

If you are otherwise qualified for the program but need additional English language training you will be eligible for a Conditional Letter of Admission that will allow you to come and study English on our campus prior to beginning the LLM program. The ELS-Cincinnati Language Center is located at the University of Cincinnati and is one of the largest ELS centers in the U.S.

Please begin your application to the UC Law LLM program as soon as possible. It can take a long time to gather all of your relevant documents for submission to the credential evaluation agency, and if you are accepted you will also need sufficient time to procure a visa. This may take several months. We will evaluate your application as soon as we receive your documents and your credential evaluation report. There is currently no fee to apply to the UC Law LLM program. Earlier applications receive priority on admission and scholarship decisions. Additional UC Law LLM application instructions are available here. You are strongly encouraged to submit all application materials by March 15, 2017.

This is a new offering that has been designed to assist students as they navigate the transition into professional practice. It provides students with a “deep dive” into selected areas of law practice so that they can more fully appreciate the character of distinctive practice areas, using readings, discussion, and interviews. The course will also help students explore their own values, and will help them develop crucial lawyering skills that research suggests is critical to success (e.g., oral communication, collaboration, strategic planning, self-assessment, and reflection).
