U.S. Legal Studies
Individualized attention, integration with U.S. law students, an extensive program of study, and exceptional faculty: these are just a few aspects of the LLM Program in U.S. Legal Studies that foreign law graduates can expect from the UConn Law.
Energy and Environmental Law
The LLM program in Energy and Environmental Law at UConn School of Law engages students and develops their expertise in global energy needs, climate change, renewable energy policy, environmental policy, and land use.
Human Rights and Social Justice
The LLM in Human Rights and Social Justice at UConn School of Law will offer students with a prior law degree a unique opportunity to pursue a course of study that integrates the international and domestic dimensions of social justice practice of law.
Our LLM in Insurance Law program is the top destination for lawyers and students from the U.S. and around the world who seek serious graduate training in insurance and financial services law. Thanks to our location in historic Hartford, Connecticut - the famed "insurance capital" and headquarters to some of the largest global insurance companies - our students study with the most sophisticated insurance law experts in the country. New York City and Boston are just two hours away and Fairfield County, Connecticut, the hedge fund capital of the U.S., is even closer.
Students attending the UConn School of Law find significant value in completing multiple programs. Former exchange students often choose to return to build on their exchange experience and receive an LLM. Similarly, many students choose to combine a JD with an LLM degree or vice versa. UConn School of Law recognizes the importance of these combined opportunities and has created admissions criteria and processes that are uniquely related to each of these opportunities.
Executive LLM in U.S. Law
The UConn School of Law offers an Executive LLM degree in partnership with Hallym University of Graduate Studies (HUGS) in Seoul, South Korea. Students may pursue the Executive LLM only in combination with the HUGS two-year master’s program in Global Legal Practice, and may choose to study for the two degrees simultaneously or sequentially. Courses are taught in South Korea by HUGS and UConn Law faculty. Students who complete the degree program may be eligible to sit for the bar in some jurisdictions in the United States.
