The University of Baltimore School of Law's innovative LL.M. program focusing on the Laws of the United States provides an ideal opportunity for foreign-trained lawyers to study at our leading Center for International and Comparative Law.
We have designed the LOTUS program specifically for foreign-educated attorneys who want a comprehensive overview of the American legal system. We have welcomed students from all over the world, including Nigeria, Cameroon, China, the Philippines, Germany, Italy, Romania, the UK, Russia, Saudi Arabia, India, Bangladesh, El Salvador, Peru, and Brazil.
Our program offers a great degree of flexibility. LL.M. LOTUS candidates may choose to complete the program in one full-time academic year of coursework or may complete it in two years on a part-time basis. Our LL.M. LOTUS students create their own program of study by either choosing U.S. Practice, a broad survey of courses that provide the foundation of American legal concepts, or the Elective Concentrations track, which provides for study of specific area of the law for which course prerequisites have been met.
The School of Law is fully accredited by the American Bar Association, the Board of Regents of the University System of Maryland and the Maryland Higher Education Commission.
