Globalization is transforming the way lawyers think and work. To be a successful lawyer today, you'll need to broaden your horizons, no matter where in the world you practice. That's one of the ways earning a Master of Laws degree (LLM) can work to your advantage. An LLM degree gives you the opportunity to acquire practical, specialized, legal knowledge that will make you more competitive in a tough job market.

Through LLM coursework, you'll gain in-depth exposure to a particular area of law that will give you an edge, whether you're a new attorney starting out or an experienced attorney looking to make a career change.

For foreign lawyers, the Suffolk Law School LLM degree offers an opportunity to study US legal system at a school known for producing excellent lawyers.

Suffolk Law's new joint JD/Tax LLM offers current law students the opportunity to earn a JD and LLM in Taxation in the same amount of time as a JD. The LLM in Tax also is offered as a stand-alonedegree program for foreign lawyers, law students at other U.S. law schools, and law school graduates.

At Suffolk Law, the focus is very practical. You'll learn not just the law, but also how to solve problems and sharpen your writing and advocacy skills. You'll be studying at a law school with nationally ranked programs in experiential specialties, such as legal writing and clinical training. Outside the classroom, you can test your skills by completing an internship for credit, either in the greater Boston area or internationally.
