Our LL.M. Program for Foreign Trained Lawyers

Explore Our Community

Like all Brooklyn Law School students, students in our LL.M. program will enjoy the benefits of learning from excellent faculty, access to a state-of-the-art library, student organizations, and exposure to a wide variety of events and enrichment programs throughout the academic year. In addition, students will study in New York City, a lively global hub of professional, creative, and cultural activity, and one of the most diverse cities in the world.

  • Our outstanding community of faculty scholars includes experts in a range of important areas of U.S. and international law. Many of our faculty also contribute to their fields as practicing lawyers with strong, long-standing ties to some of the most influential financial institutions, corporations, arts and entertainment circles, and media companies in the world.

  • Advising and support services help LL.M. students navigate the Brooklyn Law School community. Each LL.M. student will be assigned to a faculty advisor who will introduce the student to the Law School, field questions, and be a source of advice when needed. Each student will also be paired with a returning part-time LL.M. student or a third-year J.D. student interested in international law to help the LL.M. students assimilate into the student body.
  • An extraordinary array of programs and events is planned specifically for our LL.M. students. These opportunities include invitations to attend events hosted by the Dennis J. Block Center for the Study of International Business Law of particular relevance to the LL.M. students, a visit to the nearby United States Courthouse in Brooklyn, the opportunity to present scholarly work at an LL.M. workshop, and invitations to a variety of social events. As members of the Brooklyn Law School community, our LL.M. students will also have access to the dozens of symposia, lectures, forums, and panel discussions sponsored by our centers of excellence, fellowship programs, law journals, and student organizations. These programs draw distinguished speakers to the campus to engage in high-level dialogue with faculty and students. LL.M. students will also have the opportunity to act as Special Advisors to one of our four law journals or one of the Moot Court teams.

  • An amazing New York City location offers LL.M. students the benefits of living and learning in one of the most diverse and influential cities in the world. In addition to being a source of nearly endless professional and networking opportunities, New York City has been shaped by centuries of immigration, and is the origin of many important cultural and social movements. New York is also home to the United Nations headquarters, a center of international finance and development, and host to a vibrant array of cultural events, festivals, and celebrations year-round. Whatever students’ interests, inside or outside of the classroom, New York City is an ideal location for academic, professional, and cultural exploration of all kinds.
