Fordham Law School's Master of Laws (LL.M.) program is among the most highly regarded in the United States. Lawyers from the U.S. and around the world seeking specialized knowledge, training, and career advancement turn to Fordham Law School's LL.M. program for its outstanding faculty members, its location in the heart of New York City, and its welcoming community of students, faculty, administrators, and alumni. Fordham's LL.M. students gain an in-depth understanding of some of the most important and rapidly-changing fields of law. Foreign-trained law graduates also acquire a nuanced understanding of the U.S. legal system and culture.

Typically, the class that begins in August has about 150 LL.M. students representing approximately 40 countries from around the world. The class that begins in January is smaller, but is equally diverse.

Fordham Law offers LL.M. students the flexibility to begin their studies in the fall or spring semester (August or January) and to study on a full-time or part-time basis. Master of Laws students choose from seven specialized programs of study; however, they may broaden their academic horizons by choosing classes outside of their area of specialization.  Our dual-concentration option allows students to extend their LL.M. program by pursuing two areas of study.
