「院校介绍」

Founded in 1872, Boston University School of Law is a top-tier law school with a faculty recognized nationally for exceptional teaching and preeminent scholarship. You can explore virtually any area of the law in 200+ classes and seminars, 24 clinics and externships, and 21 study abroad opportunities.

With the support of a global network of nearly 24,000 alumni and a robust Career Development & Public Service Office, our graduates achieve remarkable career success. BU Law is located in the heart of Boston and housed in the ultra-modern Sumner M. Redstone Building and Law Tower. BU Law is one of the most influential schools in US legal education history, having introduced been the first US law school to introduce entrance requirements, as well as a requirement for three full years of education for the JD degree.


「课程介绍」

The LLM in American Law Program is one of the nation’s premier programs for global practitioners seeking to learn how US lawyers think, approach legal programs, and handle client matters. You’ll be integrated into the JD classroom, and have the opportunity to select from 200+ courses when creating your individualized study plan.

The Graduate Program in Banking & Financial Law equips you with the knowledge and skills needed to handle the regulatory, transactional and compliance needs of financial services clients in today’s global economy. Since conferring our first LLM in Banking and Financial Law degree in 1984, our program remains the only financial services LLM program in the country with its own faculty and a curriculum designed exclusively for graduate study. We’re ranked top 10 in the world by LLM Guide.

The LLM in Intellectual Property Law Program gives you the opportunity to learn advanced IP theory and doctrine from some of the top IP scholars in the world. For five consecutive years, U.S. News & World Report has ranked BU Law among the top ten schools for intellectual property studies.

The Graduate Tax Program equips you with the practical skills required for success in the field of taxation, whether you earn the degree through residential studies in Boston, online from home, or through a combination of both formats. An LLM in Taxation degree from BU Law is valued by employers all over the world: We’re ranked #8 in the nation for tax studies in U.S. News & World Report, and top 10 in the world by LLM Guide. For six straight years, we’ve been ranked among the country’s top seven LLM in taxation programs in the annual TaxTalent survey of corporate tax department heads.

The Two-Year LLM Program allows students to improve their Legal English in BU Law’s Legal English Certificate Program, before progressing to the LLM program of their choice. English proficiency requirements are lower for students entering the Two-Year LLM Program than other BU Law LLM programs.

「拓展阅读」

Bar qualification - Our LLM in American Law Program is our most popular program among student from China, as it is the most flexible, and therefore easiest to take courses that quality students to take the New York Bar Exam. This qualification is also possible with the Graduate Program in Banking & Financial Law, but slightly more challenging. BU Law offers individualized professional development advising on bar qualification after they enroll.

Internships - Both our LLM in American Law, and Graduate Program in Banking and Financail Law Programs offer (typically unpaid) internship placement opportunities: http://www.bu.edu/law/careers/ll ... hip-opportunities/.

Transfer to JD  - Students enrolled in the LLM in American Law Program may apply to the JD program as transfer students and—if they are admitted—may receive up to one-third of their JD credits from their LLM studies, consistent with American Bar Association standards. This means they may be able to complete the JD program with two additional years of study. To transfer, they do have to take the LSAT. More details about that can be found here: https://www.bu.edu/law/academics ... stions/#jdtransfer.

Hello Matt,

Thank you for coming to Gter. I am an undergraduate student, in my junior year. My major is not law, but I want to study law for graduate diploma. Is it difficult to get in your LLM program? Do you accept students without academic or working experience in law??

Thank you

Hi Matt,

Thank you for coming to Gter. I'm an undergraduate student and going to apply for the LLM course in your university. I'm very interested in Intellectual Property Law. Which LLM program would you suggest me to apply for, a general one or IP Law program? Will it be harder for undergraduate students to apply for specialized programs?

thanks.

Hi Matt,
I am currently working as a lawyer, but my English test score doesn't meet the requirement. I will re-take TOEFL in the near future, but I am wondering if BU will issue conditional offer, or maybe lower the language requirement for particular applicant. thank you!

Good morning! Thank you for asking the first question!

Unfortunately, our LLM programs require applicants to either have a first degree in law (this can be an LLB or LLM), or to be admitted to practice law in their home country. We do have graduate certificate programs that are open to applicants without a first degree in law. Sorry I couldn't give you better news!  If you choose to get an LLM abroad, that would qualify you to apply to an LLM at BU Law.

Hi 叫什么,

Based on your question, it does not seem as though you have a first degree in law, is that correct? Unfortunately, the Graduate Program in Banking & Financial Law requires a first degree in law to apply.  If you had a degree in law, and also experience in an accounting firm, you would definitely be qualified to apply, as we value experience outside of legal studies in applicants.

我可以读中文啊。。。

一般来讲,LLM项目没有出国(study abroad)的机会。反正,LLM就是你的出国的机会。BU的JD有足够的出国机会。
