The LLM in Transnational Business Practice trains lawyers to practice in the field of international business law. Whether trained in civil or common law, an LLM in Transnational Business Practice from McGeorge further prepares lawyers for a career in the global economy.
One of the program highlights is that our students gain access to the McGeorge Global Center for Business & Development, which stands at the interface between the global economy and the legal profession. The Global Center facilitates scholarship and curricular innovation, and hosts a number of international events every year, such as our distinguished guests of the International Jurist Series.
Our LLM program has only two requirements, (1) a substantive course: Transnational Litigation or International Business Transactions; and (2) LLM Legal Writing, Research, and Analysis for those trained in law outside of the United States, which is tailored to introduce students to common law courts, sources, legal reasoning, techniques of legal research and writing. The remaining course units can be customized to meet your individual career goals.
Students have the choice between two tracks:
"The Transnational Business Practice LLM was a wonderful experience for me, both academically and career-wise and, by giving me the opportunity to build strong and lasting relationships. The program prepared me for a number of career paths and provided me with the unique opportunity of interning with an international law firm in Phoenix. I am happy to say that the program exceeded my expectations and has been instrumental in my professional development." — Yanying Li, '09, Assistant Legal Counsel at the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague
