The University of Baltimore School of Law offers a Master of Laws program in the Law of the United States (LL.M. LOTUS). This nine-month degree program is designed for law graduates who earned their first degree in law outside the U.S. and seek to become familiar with American law and the legal system. Students educated in Brazil, Cameroon , China, Kenya, India, Iran, Nigeria, Pakistan, Romania, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Venezuela are currently enrolled. The School of Law provides a robust week-long orientation, excellent education with academic support services, and connection with its large alumni network in the Baltimore/Washington, D.C. area.
Each year, the School of Law offers partial scholarships to a small number of LL.M. students who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement. In 2010-2011, five of our 19 new students have been awarded partial scholarships. The School of Law is now accepting applications for admission to the 2011-12 LL.M. LOTUS program. Applicants who seek a merit scholarship indicate that fact on their application and feature their academic and professional achievements in their statement of purpose and resume. The School of Law welcomes Fulbright and Muskie Fellows.
A unique institution at the School of Law, the Center on Applied Feminism connects with the Center for International and Comparative Law at which the LL.M. program is based. International law students in our LL.M. program engage in dialogues about international and human rights issues relating to gender around the world. We have held a series of videoconferences on family law with a sister school in India.
