LLM in Child and Family Law

In today’s legal environment, many lawyers from countries around the world are discovering that an LL.M. degree is an essential credential for accomplishing their career goals. Loyola offers such students an opportunity to earn this advanced degree in a world-class university and law school located in one of America’s largest and most beautiful cities. For students interested in specialized training in child and family law, Loyola’s curriculum is the most comprehensive available at any American law school.  

International LLM applicants must hold a degree in law, equivalent to a U.S. JD, from an accredited foreign law school. The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is not required for admission to the LLM program. Non-US citizens are not eligible for federal or state funding for study in the United States. International students are able to complete the LLM degree within one academic year by completing 24 hours of credit and maintaining a grade point average of 2.33 or better.
