Study U.S. Law in Baltimore 

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

  • Tuition is highly competitive ($20K), which is half the price of LL.M. programs in Washington, D.C. ($20,000 is for full-time students; part-time students will be charged by the credit hour)
  • Graduates are eligible to sit for several different bar exams, including Maryland, New York, and Washington, D.C.
  • Students receive a top-notch education in our new world-class law center, the John and Frances Angelos Law Center.
  • Our proximity to Washington, D.C. is ideal - we are only a short and inexpensive ($7/one way) train ride away!

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, the UK, El Salvador, 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.
