The UConn School of Law is one of the leading public law schools in the country. Its campus, listed on the National Register of Historic Sites, is probably the most beautiful of any law school in the United States. Founded in 1921, the Law School is accredited by the American Bar Association and is a member of the Association of American Law Schools. It offers a professional education of the highest quality that prepares its graduates for a lifetime of fulfilling service in any career they choose, including the bar, government, business, and education. The school's program emphasizes intellectual discipline and the development of the professional analytic skills required to respond effectively to the challenge of continuing change in the law and in the society it serves.
Master of Law Programs at UConn Law:
LL.M. in Insurance Law: The UConn School of Law Insurance LL.M program is the top destination for graduates who seek serious training in insurance and financial services law. In this program, we have international lawyers and regulators from around the world seeking to gain a comprehensive insurance law expertise. Many return to their home countries to accept leadership positions in government organizations developing the insurance regulations for their countries.
LL.M. in U.S. Legal Studies: For lawyers who obtained their first law degree outside of the U.S., this program offers an individualized curriculum or the ability to specialize in five areas: international human rights, intellectual property, tax, financial services regulation, and energy and environmental law. Again, we have students from all over the world in this program seeking to earn a US degree and potentially also sit for a U.S. Bar exam – typically in NY and/or MA.
LL.M. in Social Justice and Human Rights: A newly developed LL.M. program with core courses that cover the main historical, philosophical and legal questions in the international human rights and U.S. civil rights movements. Tapping into a growing trend in the business, non-profit and public policy world to integrate international and domestic human rights, the program will provide students with a rigorous grounding in the norms and methods of human rights and social justice practice as well as the specialized credentials and skills needed to gain entry to these fields.
LL.M. in Energy and Environmental Law: In 2010, UConn Law created the Center for Energy and Environmental Law (CEEL) as part of a program for combined legal education, policy and scholarship. This newly developed LL.M. program focuses on global energy demands, climate change, environmental degradation and the impact on our growing world.
LL.M. in Intellectual Property and Information Governance: With the growth of human creativity and inventiveness, intellectual property law is emerging as one of the most dynamic fields of legal practice. This program is designed to prepare graduates for the global business environment and policy positions. It encourages the balancing of competing private and public demands for innovation in arts, markets and new technologies.
LL.M. to J.D. Transfer: LL.M. students who obtain good grades may also apply to our J.D. program without having to take the LSAT, and if accepted, can transfer most of their LL.M. credits to their J.D. Program.
Exchange to LL M. Program: If you attended UConn Law as an exchange student, you may be eligible to use credits earned on exchange toward an LL.M. degree.
