The Georgia State University College of Law in Atlanta offers Law graduates from U.S. universities with an LLM program that has an option to concentrate in Health Law. The Law School just recently expended the concentrations to include Environmental and Land Use Law and Intellectual Property (IP) Law, which will be offered starting its Fall 2018 intake.
The LLM program for U.S.-trained lawyers is offered alongside the LLM program for foreign-trained lawyers, also with similar concentrations, i.e., Health Law, Intellectual Property, and Land Use and Urban Growth.
The LLM programs have an August intake per annum and applications are currently accepted for the Fall 2018 classes. Application deadline is 15 April 2018.
The new concentration on Environmental and Land-Use is designed for U.S.-trained attorneys transitioning to this area of law from another legal field aimed at further deepening their knowledge to enhance their existing careers. LLM students who opt to take this concentration will collaborate with engineers, planners, government officials and developers, all the while using their legal prowess.
The Intellectual Property Law concentration promotes the skills and knowledge a contemporary IP lawyer required to be able to cope with the rapidly changing IP practice. LLM students taking this concentration will be applying legal concepts in various IP settings, such as, litigation, prosecution and transactional work.
Applications for the August 2018 LLM classes may be submitted online through the Law School Admission Council (LSAC).
