Starting in September 2014, Washington University School of Law will offer a new online dual Master of Laws (LL.M.) in partnership with Tecnológico de Monterrey’s prestigious EGAP Graduate School of Government and Public Policy. The program is designed for non-U.S.-trained lawyers who engage in transnational business and legal practice. Students graduating from the program will earn an LL.M. in U.S. Law from Washington University School of Law, as well as an LL.M. in Transnational Legal Practice from EGAP, Tecnológico de Monterrey. Graduates will also be eligible to sit for the California Bar.
Located in Mexico, Tecnológico de Monterrey is a private, top-ranked university renowned throughout Latin America. It is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and is a member of the European Consortium of Innovative Universities (ECIU).
Washington University School of Law Associate Dean Mike Koby commented by saying, “With today’s announcement, Washington University School of Law continues to set itself apart by offering innovative online learning options to professionals around the world. Our collaboration with EGAP, Tecnológico de Monterrey will provide lawyers across Latin America and the globe the opportunity to learn about the unique aspects of U.S. law, as well as the transnational legal and business practices required to gain a competitive advantage in today’s increasingly global economy.”
The dual LL.M. degree will be delivered online and will feature live weekly class sessions, self-paced asynchronous coursework, dynamic video content and more. The dual-degree consists of 35 credits, which can be completed in two to three years (24-36 months) on a part-time or full-time basis.
