Indiana University Maurer School of Law has been granting graduate degrees to international lawyers for more than 100 years, in LL.M., MCL, SJD, and PhD programs. Our internationally respected Master of Laws (LL.M.) program offers highly qualified and academically outstanding students the opportunity to pursue advanced legal studies in a rigorous, but supportive, environment. Indiana Law is a top-ranked law school in the United States, and the LL.M. program has earned top ratings in the areas of academics, best law school experience, career planning, and best value.

Indiana Law’s LL.M. degree is primarily for international students with a first degree in law, and it requires at least one academic year in residence. We currently offer both the traditional LL.M. (24 credit hours) as well as an LL.M. with thesis (30 credit hours) for students planning to pursue doctoral studies. We also offer six areas of specialization for the LL.M. degree.
