The School of Law offers a degree program leading to a master of laws with concentrations in American law, business law, conflict and dispute resolution, or environmental and natural resources law. Applicants must have a JD from an accredited US law school or a law degree (e.g., LLB) from a non-US program of legal education. The program requires two semesters in residence at the UO School of Law and 24 credits earned. The LLM seminar is an integrating experience for students, providing education on topics of current concern and introducing students to a variety of lawyers, officials, and natural environments in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States during field trips. The students also work to improve their skills in making presentations, preparing articles for publication, and working collaboratively. Some LLM students also have the opportunity to participate in the clinical programs at the Western Environmental Law Center and Business Law Clinic and the externship program. This program is intended to prepare a select group of postgraduate students for careers in teaching, high-level governmental or international positions, and legal careers in private or public service.
