Master of Laws (LL.M.) Program

law in a global context

The LL.M. program is designed to immerse participants in the intricacies and flavor of the United States legal system, and help prepare them for the challenges of work in an increasingly global legal community.  If you join us, you will design your own course of study from an enormous range of options – from business law to human rights to international law and beyond.  As importantly, you will become an integral member of a carefully selected student body – the next generation of leaders in legal practice, government, NGOs, the judiciary, law teaching and private industry.  Boston College’s LL.M. program is a centerpiece of our commitment to promoting the delivery of justice not just nationally, but internationally as well.

If you have any questions about the program, please contact us by email at or by telephone at (617) 552-1002.  We hope to get to know you better!
