The 2018 LLM classes in the University of Oregon (UO) School of Law have started. However, prospective students should start preparing their applications for UO Law's next intake, which takes place in January. The spring LLM program applications and requirements must be made by 15 October 2017. All applications should be submitted online via the LSAC.
Located in Eugene, Oregon, UO is situated in an environmentally-friendly city, rich with artistic scenery. The campus is conducive to learning and its faculty is composed of renowned innovators, experts and scholars. It is not surprising that UO Law's alumni are now leaders in their own fields.
An Oregon Law LLM degree is ideal for those who want to gain a deeper understanding of American law and the U.S. legal system. It also allows students to acquire a valuable international network among legal practitioners, which could prove useful in their professions. UO Law is currently offering four LLM courses, all of which must be taken full-time in residence. The duration of each program is one year and students may choose from the following specialized Master of Laws degrees:
- LLM in Business Law
- LLM in American Law
- LLM in Environmental and Natural Resources Law
- LLM in Conflict and Dispute Resolution
The tuition and fees for January 2018 classes is yet to be announced. Fees for fall 2017 are $41,644. Although it would be best to complete the application by 15 October 2017, the rolling admissions UO Law employs give LLM applicants a chance to get a slot until the start of classes in January 2018, depending on availability.
