Individualized Study LL.M. for U.S. J.D. Graduates

The Individualized Study LL.M. Program at Loyola gives United States law graduates the opportunity to take their education even further. Students work with faculty in developing a specialized training program to fit each student’s individual interests and goals. LL.M. candidates experience all the same benefits of our renowned J.D. Program—personal attention, a rigorous curriculum and the option to earn a certificate in one of six approved tracks

Louisiana is the only mixed jurisdiction state in the country, which means Loyola is one of just a few schools that can offer certificates in common and civil law. This will provide you with added flexibility in deciding where to practice—whether that’s in Louisiana, elsewhere in the U.S., or other civil law jurisdictions in the world.

Students are permitted to pursue the 24-credit-hour program on a full or part time basis. Each student will work with an individual faculty mentor to monitor academic success and professional growth.
