What is a Master of Laws (LL.M.)?

A Master of Laws (LL.M.) is an advanced law certification that requires a Juris Doctor from an accredited U.S. law school or a law degree (LL.B. or the equivalent) from a foreign law school. The online LL.M. degree provides additional specialization in legal studies that lends itself to advanced practice and advisement roles. If you do not have a law degree, you will first need to obtain one through a residential, accredited U.S. school of law before you can pursue an online LL.M. degree.
