Earn your international LLM (Master of Laws) at Case Western Reserve

Case Western Reserve University School of Law offers five LLM (Master of Laws) degree programs to ensure you can gain the knowledge and experience necessary for a successful international law career.

LLM applicants should have an undergraduate law degree. Students with degrees in other subjects—such as business, science or engineering—can be admitted to our LLM degree programs in International Business Law or Intellectual Property Law. 

Conditional admission is offered to students whose academic credentials are strong, but who need more time to improve their English. Students can improve their English at ELS Cleveland, located on the Case Western Reserve University campus. Graduation from ELS is accepted in lieu of TOEFL or IELTS scores.
