Dear Admitted Student:
Congratulations on your admission to BU Law! As an LL.M. student, you are about to embark on a one of the most rewarding and challenging experiences of your life. Each of our graduate programs has claimed a leading position in U.S. legal education: Our LL.M. in American Law Program integrates foreign-trained lawyers into our J.D. classes, giving them access to the Number #1 Teaching Faculty in the nation. Our Banking and Financial Law Program is the first program of its kind in America, at the cutting-edge of preparing domestic and foreign attorneys for work in today’s rapidly changing financial markets, here and abroad. Our Intellectual Property Law Program builds upon BU Law’s leading reputation in intellectual property and high-technology law – a field where U.S. News and World Report ranks us 12th nationally. The Executive LL.M. in International Business Law exposes you to the core topics of international business practice and offers a world-class degree designed for today’s international practitioner. And our Graduate Tax Program – the longest-standing specialized tax program in America – gives you access to BU Law’s leading position in that field: we are consistently ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of the top 10 American law schools in tax studies - currently number six among law schools with graduate tax programs.
