Online Experience

What technology is used in the @WashULaw LL.M. program?
Students enrolled in the @WashULaw LL.M. program use a cutting-edge Learning Management System called 2Law. The interactive social technology platform allows students to chat, study, and join communities with their classmates and professors 24/7. In addition to the 2Law platform, students will attend weekly live online class sessions that are delivered face-to-face by Washington University School of Law faculty.

How many classmates will I have in each of my courses?
There are a maximum of 15 students to each online course. This ensures that you, your professors and classmates will have an opportunity to get to know each other, and that faculty will be readily accessible to answer your questions about class materials, current issues in the law and even career options.

What is required of students in @WashULaw LL.M. program courses?
Each course is designed and delivered by a Washington University School of Law professor. Students should expect the following from each course:

  • The curriculum including self-paced coursework that uses multimedia to prepare students for richer discussion and greater interaction during the scheduled weekly class sessions;
  • Preparation outside of class, which includes teamwork and assignments incorporating readings, case studies, projects and papers; and
  • Weekly live online session in small groups of up to 15 students led by faculty instructors; may include case discussions, role plays, breakout groups and other discussions to drive learning.

Will my transcript indicate that I took an online program?
No. The @WashULaw LL.M. program requires the same admissions and graduation requirements as the on-campus program, so there is no difference between the academic degrees earned.
