New practice oriented LL.M. on Rule of Law for Development, Loyola University Chicago, School of Law

The Loyola University Chicago’s School of Law has a new and fully accredited, practice oriented LL.M. on Rule of Law for Development. The program is organized in Loyola campus in Rome, beginning in September 2011. Twenty-seven credits are required for degree completion, including a thesis.

The students will be provided with the specific knowledge and skills they need to become qualified and effective rule of law advisors in national and internationally sponsored initiatives to improve the rule of law in developing countries, countries in economic transition and countries recovering from violent conflict. Although the course will give students sound understanding of theory, it will be first and foremost practice-oriented.

The School of Law has invited applications from legal professionals around the world who already hold a first degree in law from an accredited university. Lawyers and judges from developing countries and law-trained staff of NGO's and development organizations working on rule of law and legal and justice reform issues were all encouraged to apply for the fall semester of 2011.
