We are proud to introduce the University of Georgia School of Law Master of Laws (LL.M.) Class of 2018.
The group of 16 includes lawyers from 10 different countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Americas: China, Colombia, Egypt, France, India, Iran, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, and Russian Federation.
They join a tradition that began at the University of Georgia School of Law in the early 1970s, when a Belgian lawyer became the first foreign-trained practitioner to earn a Georgia Law LL.M. degree. In the ensuing four decades, the law school and its Dean Rusk International Law Center have produced about 500 LL.M. graduates, with ties to 75 countries and every continent in the world.
Side by side with J.D. candidates, LL.M.s follow a flexible curriculum tailored to their own career goals – goals that may include preparation to sit for a U.S. bar examination, or pursuit of a concentration affording advancement in their home country’s legal profession or academic institutions.
