The Graduate Legal Studies Program at Cornell Law School is a key component in the academic and cultural life of the law school.
The program encompasses all of the graduate degrees beyond the Juris Doctor (J.D.), as well as visiting doctoral students and post-doctoral fellows. Each year the program includes 65-75 foreign-trained lawyers enrolled in our one year Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree program who come to Cornell from 25-30 different countries. These students join our Doctor of the Science of Law (J.S.D.) students and visiting doctoral students who are pursuing advanced academic degrees, as well as post-doctoral fellows conducting advanced research and teaching at Cornell Law School.
The Graduate Program is administered through the Graduate Legal Studies Office and is part of the law school’s overall International Program.
