Washington University School of Law has partnered with the Tecnológico de Monterrey’s Escuela de Gobierno y Transformación Pública (the Graduate School of Government and Public Transformation) to deliver a dual master’s degree online. Tecnológico de Monterrey is the most prestigious private university in Mexico. 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).
Offered entirely online, the dual degree is for non-U.S.-trained lawyers who want to build their knowledge of international law, including legal practice in the U.S. and Latin America, but are not able to put their careers or personal commitments on hold. The degree features curricula from two top-ranked universities and live, online classes taught by distinguished faculty.
Students also have access to LexisNexis and Westlaw, two extensive legal research databases used by lawyers and law firms. With these databases, students can view legal resources such as cases, state and federal statutes, administrative codes, public records, and legal forms to help inform their legal writing and research for course work.
Graduates from this program earn an LL.M. in U.S. Law from Washington University School of Law, a top-20 American law school, and an LL.M. in Transnational Legal Practice from Tecnológico de Monterrey, a university ranked No. 1 in Mexico and No. 7 in Latin America. The program can be completed in two to three years (24–36 months) on a full-time or part-time basis.

Tecnológico de Monterrey is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award a master’s degree in Transnational Legal Practice from the School of Government and Public Transformation. Washington University School of Law is not accredited by SACS Commission on Colleges and the accreditation of Tecnológico de Monterrey does not extend to or include Washington University School of Law or its students. Further, although Tecnológico de Monterrey agrees to accept certain course work from Washington University School of Law to be applied toward an award from Tecnológico de Monterrey, that course work may not be accepted by other colleges or universities in transfer, even if it appears on a transcript from Tecnológico de Monterrey. The decision to accept course work in transfer from any institution is made by the institution considering the acceptance of credits or course work.
