USF's LLM program for foreign lawyers in International Transactions and Comparative Law is open to students who have received a law degree from a university outside the United States and who speak English fluently.
The program requires completion of 25 course units of credit over two consecutive full-time semesters of study at the USF School of Law (August through May). With the approval of the director, the program may also be completed through part-time study.
The International Transactions and Comparative Law Program offers two options for specialized study: 1) law relating to international commercial transactions; or 2) a student-selected area of American law as a comparative law study. Completion of either option leads to the LLM degree in International Transactions and Comparative Law.
