With Brooklyn Law School’s new international dual degree program (J.D./LL.M.), students can earn both degrees in three years. Built on the strength of existing international programs, the option enables BLS students to live abroad for two semesters during their second or third year, earning both an LL.M. and credit toward their J.D. Reciprocally, international students from partner institutions can earn either an LL.M. or a J.D.
In addition to current partnerships with Université Jean Moulin Lyon 3 (France), Universidad Pontificia Comillas (Spain), University College Cork (Ireland), and Bucerius Law School (Germany), the Law School is working to create programs with institutions worldwide, which we expect to announce shortly. Each partner institution will offer a full curriculum in international law – with courses such Institutional Law of the EU, International Dispute Resolution, International Banking Law, and International Public Law.
The international dual degree program (J.D./LL.M.) lends a truly global perspective, building not only personal credentials but also valuable contacts. The goal is to offer new choices for students interested in international law – be it transactional or public law.
