Dayton Law to launch online LL.M on American and Transnational Law

The University of Dayton School of Law will offer an entirely online LL.M. program in American and Transnational Law, including an optional U.S. legal practice certificate, starting in January. LL.M. programs are for those who already hold a law degree but want additional training in a specific area.

"The program is open to domestic and international students, but is designed primarily for international students who want to learn more about U.S. law and legal practice. International students completing the program may be eligible to sit for the bar exam in Washington," said Margaret Ioannides, online LL.M. program manager. "We are also exploring additional bar opportunities for our students. Financial aid and scholarships may be available as well."

Students can complete the LL.M. program entirely online in approximately one year, but must complete it within four years. Students wishing to add the optional U.S. legal practice certificate must complete the program within three years.

Reading materials for each course will be available online for free. Students also can interact with each other and faculty in real-time via live, online office hours and discussion boards.

The Ohio-based school is among the pioneers in online legal education. It will launch Law@Dayton, one of the nation's first accredited hybrid J.D. programs, blending online and on-campus instruction, in August. For more information, visit
