Online LLM Programs

Delaware Law offers master of laws programs in an online format. A qualified student from anywhere in the world with a high speed Internet connection can now earn an LLM entirely online from Delaware Law.

Our online LLM program is ideally suited for business lawyers and law graduates from around the world who are currently engaged in or interested in a business law career within government, industry, or private practice, and who wish to advance their expertise in a corporate law and regulatory compliance specialized concentration without the expense or disruption of relocating to the United States for a traditional on-campus program. A juris doctor (JD) degree or a first degree in law from an academically qualified non-U.S. law school is required. Applicants with a U.S. juris doctor degree must be a graduate of an ABA-approved law school juris doctor program. Please note that the LLM programs that are offered entirely online will not, by themselves, permit the graduate to take a bar examination in the United States.

Degree Requirements

To earn an online general LLM, students must complete 24 semester hours of coursework. Typically, the 24 semester hours of coursework can be completed in one academic year. Students in an online LLM program have the option to structure their program at a more flexible pace, completing the program over two years. All coursework, however, must be completed within four years from the date of matriculation.
