“Globalization” is more than just a buzzword: it can be thought of as a kind of shorthand for the way the legal marketplace is evolving. Law students today will most likely find themselves practicing in more than one country, and dealing with more than one system of laws. UT Law prepares students for that reality through a robust series of international initiatives.
UT Law offers six different concentrations of study in the LL.M. program: Business, Global Energy, International Arbitration and Environmental Law, Human Rights & Comparative Constitutional Law, Latin American & International Law, U.S. law for Foreign Lawyers and Independent Study. Detailed information about these programs can be found on the Master of Laws programs (LL.M.) page.
In 2009, nearly fifteen percent of the graduating class studied in Australia, Europe, and Latin America. UT Law enjoys long-term exchange arrangements with prominent European universities, and offers three study-abroad programs to JD students. Detailed information about these programs can be found on the International Student Programs page.
UT Law students participate in international internships with courts, institutions, and nongovernmental organizations in Europe, Africa, and Latin America. Detailed information about these programs can be found on the International Programs -- Internships page.
