Loyola Chicago’s LLM for International Lawyers features two tracks: Immersion in U.S. Law for Foreign Lawyers (Track I), and International Law with Focus Option (Track II). Track I is designed for foreign lawyers who seek to develop an expertise in specific aspects of American law. The rigorous curriculum immerses students in the foundations of U.S. law and legal thought and provides a thorough training in legal skills critical to advising clients in the U.S. or globally. Track II is geared towards students interested in private and public international law. Students may focus on any of Loyola's specialty areas, including arbitration, mediation, and negotiation; business; child and family; competition; health; human rights, intellectual property; tax; or trade law, all of which include strong international and comparative components. Under the guidance of our engaged international faculty, students also may develop their own focus to match their academic interests and professional goals. In both tracks, students join their American peers in regular JD classes to enhance their immersion in the U.S. academic and legal culture. We offer a general scholarship and three specialized scholarships. Our goal is to attract students with outstanding academic and professional credentials from culturally, geographically, and socially diverse backgrounds to our school. GENERAL SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM Loyola offers a scholarship program for exceptionally qualified students in both the U.S. Law and International Law track. We encourage applicants to include a formal request for consideration for a scholarship in their personal statement, highlighting distinguishing academic and professional achievements, as well as demonstrated financial need. The Admissions Committee will decide about the scholarship request when reviewing the application file. INTERNATIONAL LAW/FOCUS SCHOLARSHIPS In 2013, the Office of Foreign and International LLM Programs joined forces with the Institute for Consumer Antitrust Studies, the Dan K. Webb Center for Advocacy, and the Civitas ChildLaw Center to create tuition-reduction scholarships for students in the LLM Program for International Lawyers with Focus Option. We encourage applicants to include a formal request for consideration in their personal statement, illustrating their accomplishments and interest in the specific field of law (Antitrust/Competition, Child and Family, or Alternative Dispute Resolution). The Admissions Committee will decide about the scholarship request when reviewing the application file. The Consumer Antitrust Scholarship, the Civitas Child & Family Law Scholarship, and the Dispute Resolution International Scholarship have the following features in common: • 40% tuition-reduction scholarship • Reduced tuition: $21,758; full tuition: $36,264 • Recipients work closely with Institute Faculty to develop a tailored curriculum in their focus area • Recipients partake in the full activities and events of the Institutes.
