Program Overview

The general LLM's dynamic co-op program provides the most flexibility for students to take the courses they want in pursuit of their professional interests and personal aspirations. Many LLM students also choose the general program to qualify for a bar examination in one of the United States jurisdictions (Massachusetts or New York, for example) that admit lawyers trained outside the U.S. Whether you are a U.S. or internationally trained lawyer looking for individualized professional growth or to become a candidate for a U.S. bar exam, Northeastern’s general program offers what you need to do what you want: to advance your professional goals and to make a difference in the world.

You'll shape your own experiences in this program—drawing from an industry-informed curriculum in three areas: Intellectual Property and Technology Law, International Business Law, and Bar Examination Preparation Law.

  • A concentration in Health Policy and Law to equip you with the knowledge and practical skills you need for one of today’s hottest practice areas
  • A concentration in Human Rights to prepare you to take on the global challenge of rights abuses
  • A concentration in International Business Law to aid you to practice in the complex and constantly evolving world of business across national borders?
  • A concentration in Law and Economic Development to position yourself as a lawyer working in support of economic development
  • A concentration in Intellectual Property and Innovation

The School of Law educates our JD and On-Campus LLM students who opt for the 12-month program through academically rigorous coursework integrated with our signature Cooperative Legal Education Program (co-op). Placement opportunities may include law firms, companies, clinics, courts, government agencies, community organizations or advocacy groups. Guided by the LLM professional development advisor, you'll define your professional objectives and identify a co-op opportunity that meets your unique goals.
