Curriculum

Students pursuing the Global Health Law LL.M. degree must complete the general degree requirements that apply to all LL.M. students, whether U.S.-trained or foreign-trained. 

In addition to these general requirements, the following specific requirements apply:

U.S.-trained students (with a J.D. degree from law schools in the U.S.)

Students must complete a total of 24 academic credits, of which at least 16 credits must be Global Health Law "specialization credits" (see right-hand side of this page). 

As part of their required Global Health Law specialization credits, students must take the 4-credit course Global Health Law.

The remaining credits must be completed from an array of other health-related courses found in the Curriculum Guide.

Students must earn a minimum grade point average of "B-" (2.67/4.00) in the courses that are counted toward the LL.M. in Global Health Law specialization requirements.

Foreign-trained students (with their first degree in law from outside the U.S.)

Students must complete a total of 20 academic credits, of which at least 14 credits must be Global Health Law "specialization credits" (see right-hand side of this page).

As part of their required Global Health Law specialization credits, students must take the 4-credit course Global Health Law.

The remaining credits must be completed from an array of other health-related courses found in the Curriculum Guide.

Students must earn a minimum grade point average of "B-" (2.67/4.00) in the courses that are counted toward the LL.M. in Global Health Law specialization requirements.

Practice-oriented track additional requirement: A minimum of 1 credit of off-campus work experience earned through an externship, practicum course, or workshop. Note: F-1 international students should contact their International Student Advisor about obtaining Curricular Practical Training for this off-campus work experience.

While not required, students are strongly recommended to enroll in either Advanced Scholarly Writing or U.S. Legal Research, Analysis and Writing. These courses count toward the 20-credit degree requirement but not the 14 specialization credits.
