  • Currently, this option is not available. We do have one online course offered in our Animal Law Summer Program.

  • All students are required to take a two-credit Graduate Animal Law Seminar (one credit in the fall, one credit in the spring). Students are also required to take Administrative Law (3 credits) and Animal Law Fundamentals (3 credits) classes if they had not already satisfied these requirements in their JD programs. International students are not required to take Administrative Law, but it is encouraged.

    For the remaining credits, students may choose from any of our animal law courses, including up to 8 credits in non-animal law classes.

    A major written thesis (6 credits) is an option for selected students subject to the approval of the program director and faculty thesis supervisor.

    The LLM faculty advisor will counsel students on class selection, graduation requirements and other matters. Students will work with the advisor to register for classes once registration opens.

  • The LLM program requires students to complete 26 semester hours of credit and receive a cumulative GPA of 2.50 or better. A full-time student can compete the program in one academic year (two semesters). Students are allowed to attend the program part-time and will have up to two and a half years to satisfy all degree requirements.

    Students may also take classes toward their degree through the Animal Law Summer Program.
