Message from the Director

Professor Aviva AbramovskyWelcome to the Syracuse University College of Law, Master of Laws (LL.M.) program. In the belief in value of the international exchange of ideas, we welcome students from varied legal backgrounds and nations. Whether you are seeking a comprehensive overview of American law or seek to specialize in specific areas of the law, the LL.M. will provide you with the knowledge and expertise to accomplish your professional goals.

This program is exclusively available to foreign-trained lawyers. We seek people from diverse legal backgrounds, including corporate, government, private practice, judicial and academic.

During your LL.M. program studies, you will take three courses designed for the LL.M. program, which have been designed to teach the foundations of the American legal system, U.S. legal writing, and strategies to succeed in your practice. You will also enroll in Professional Responsibility, a course that teaches the ethical rules which govern the behavior and conduct of the American lawyer. Finally, you will also draft a significant research paper which will allow you to engage deeply with a faculty member on a topic of your choice.  The remainder of the program will allow you to tailor your own experience in the LL.M. from among the superb and diverse courses offered at the College.

With a storied tradition of international engagement, Syracuse welcomes you to our University and to your discovery of American law.
