LLM in Child and Family Law

The practice of child and family law has become significantly more complex in recent years as the definition of family has expanded, the concept of children’s rights has emerged, and the law has struggled to keep pace. This legal concentration allows students to engage in comprehensive study in child law trial practice and legislation, international rights for children, adoption law, and domestic violence.

Intended for graduates of U.S. and foreign law schools, the program is tailored to meet individual students’ backgrounds and interests, and offers graduate students an opportunity to work closely with faculty who are nationally recognized for their work in the field.
