LL.M. Program Description

The UDC David A. Clarke School of Law has an excellent, nationally ranked clinical education program where each J.D. candidate must complete two seven-credit clinics to graduate. LL.M. candidates work closely with experienced faculty members to teach and supervise clinic students learning substantive law and practice skills. In addition, over the course of the two- year program, fellows in the LL.M. program must complete a scholarly work of publishable quality, or a project designed to stimulate systems change.

The two-year LL.M. program includes coursework in clinical pedagogy, legal scholarship, public interest law, and systems change. The focus of the program is to provide fellows with a foundation in clinical education practices and to strengthen their lawyering and advocacy skills.

Is this the fellowship that you’ve been waiting for? See the full post on PSJD.
