Transnational Studies in a
As a New York City academic institution, St. John’s School of Law
sits at the commercial, cultural and legal crossroads of the world.
And St. John’s is a great choice for both aspiring lawyers and
those who already have a law degree who want to prepare themselves
for the practice of law in an increasingly interconnected global
legal market. The legal world is both shrinking and flattening –
and through its Office of Transnational Programs, St. John’s School
of Law offers its students ample opportunities to train for this
Graduate Programs for Global
St. John’s School of Law offers outstanding LL.M. (Master of Laws )
programs for both American and foreign-trained attorneys. Our
graduate law programs include:
International and Comparative Sports Law A joint degree program
offered with the Madrid-based Instituto Superior de Derecho y
Economia (ISDE) this unique LL.M. program is designed specifically
for lawyers with a passion for sport and a strong desire to
practice in this challenging and dynamic area of the law. Open to
American and foreign law graduates, this program comprises one
semester of intense and focused academics, followed by a semester
of practice placement with sports law firms, agencies, regulatory
bodies, leagues, or teams.
Transnational Legal Practice A degree program designed for both
American and foreign-trained attorneys seeking advanced training
for transnational practice. With concentration tracks in public
international legal practice, cross-border transactions, or
transnational dispute resolution, students may also design their
own course of study to meet their professional needs and personal
LL.M. in U.S.
Legal Studies A very focused LL.M. program designed
specifically to prepare foreign-trained lawyers with the knowledge
and skills necessary to qualify for and pass the New York Bar
Examination. For foreign-trained lawyers wishing to practice in New
York permanently or to enter transnational practice in their home
jurisdiction, admission to the New York Bar is essential. While
some law schools use qualification to sit the New York Bar as a
marketing hook for their generic LL.M. programs, St. John’s
objective is specifically to assist you in every way possible in
your goal of passing the Bar Examination and gaining admission to
the New York Bar.
Transnational Studies for J.D.
Summer Study Abroad St. John’s School of Law hosts month-long
programs each summer at the University’s beautiful Rome and Paris
campuses, each located in the heart of one of the Great Cities of
Europe. Students with an interest in international and comparative
law – or simply wanting to expand their legal education experience
overseas – will find no better programs.
International Practica At St. John’s School of Law, we
justifiably pride ourselves on our strong reputation for preparing
young lawyers for the practice of law, and our transnational
programs also provide experiential learning opportunities for J.D.
students. For the 2012-2013 academic year, two students will be
doing five-month practicum placements with the North Atlantic
Treaty Organization (NATO) in Mons, Belgium. Additional overseas
practica will be added in the 2013-2104 academic year and
Global Law Fellows The Dean welcomes up to 12 visiting foreign
research fellows to St. John’s School of Law each semester. Whether
final year undergraduate, masters, or doctoral law students from
foreign universities, St. John’s is proud to welcome such promising
young scholars from around the world to our academic community and
to New York City.
