A+ for Best Law School Experience: Stetson’s LL.M. in International Law

The latest issue of the International Jurist magazine gives Stetson University College of Law’s LL.M. in International Law program a grade A+ for Best Law School Experience in the Best LL.M. Programs issue.

Only a dozen schools received an A+ around the country. LL.M. programs that made the grade focused on more than just academics.

The International Jurist magazine looked at eight factors in grading schools for the law school experience. Four factors focused on student participation in activities like clinics and experiential training opportunities, law journals, extracurricular offerings and excursions.  Another factor considered whether an office or dedicated staff was assigned to assist LL.M. students. Three factors focused on transitioning and whether schools help students adjust to the U.S., provide mentors and opportunities to meet U.S. students.

As writer Katie Thisdell explains, “for many students, assimilating to a new culture will be the biggest and most immediate challenge.”

Stetson’s LL.M. in International Law program was launched in 1998. In 2016, Stetson’s LL.M. in International Law program was also recognized by International Jurist magazine as one of the best LL.M. programs for career opportunities.
