New LLM Program at Georgia State University
Georgia State University has been ranked numerous times as a best value institution for its affordable tuition costs and the relatively low living expenses while studying. Besides its general LLM program, GSU's College of Law recently launched a new LLM program in Health Law. This degree is open only to U.S. Juris Doctor graduates.
Students of the new LLM in Health Law are trained for careers in policy work and legal practice relating to health law as they are exposed to the different policies, concepts, laws, skills, institutions and values within the field of health. This course can be completed full-time or part-time.
The general LLM program offered by GSU's College of Law is, however, open to both U.S. and international students who have received a law degree in their respective countries. Many are attracted to this offering not only due to its reasonable tuition and fees, $36,456 for non-residents and $16,858 for Georgia residents, but also due to its requirements which are not as stringent. For instance, the GRE or LSAT are not required for admission to the LLM program. The English proficiency requirements is 90 for TOEFL and 6.5 for IELTS.
The LLM programs must be completed in residence and commence in the fall of each year, which is early August. A mandatory orientation is held in August prior to the start of classes. If you want the best value LLM programs offered by GSU, it is high time to prepare your requirements to be submitted online for next year's LLM courses. Applications will be accepted starting in January 2018 until all of the slots have been filled.
