LL.M. Specializations

Specializations

After successful completion of our program, UC Hastings LL.M. students will receive an LL.M. Degree in U.S. Legal Studies. Academic Advisors help students individually tailor their coursework to meet their personal and professional goals. Students may choose to take a variety of courses that interest them or prepare them for a Bar Exam, or students may choose to specialize in one of our eight areas of specialization.

LL.M. students who earn at least 12 credits of qualifying courses in their chosen specialization will receive a Certificate of Specialization at graduation. Students who participate in at least one legal clinic or the Startup Legal Garage can also receive a Practice Training Certificate at graduation.
