LL.M. Overview

General LL.M. Admissions

The master of laws (LL.M.) degree at Cornell Law School is a one-year program designed for practicing attorneys and recent law school graduates who have earned a first degree in law outside the United States. Through the General LL.M. program, students increase their understanding of American legal principles and can further develop a legal specialization.
“The relatively small size of the school and the classes, and the connections formed there have had a longstanding effect on me.”
Fouad Debs, LLM Graduate

On June 5, 2022, the government of Malawi issued a press release announcing that President Lazarus Chakwera had commuted the death sentences of 22 death row prisoners. The move came after years of campaigning by human rights advocates in Malawi and beyond, including a petition authored by two students of Cornell Law School’s International Human Rights Clinic.
