Special LL.M. and Overseas Training Programs: Chicago-Kent and Chiang Mai University, Chiang Mai, Thailand
In partnership with Chiang Mai University in Chiang Mai Thailand (CMU), Chicago-Kent and CMU are offering four law courses taught by Chicago-Kent professors as part of an Overseas Training Program. CMU law students start the program at their home university in Chiang Mai, and if they successfully complete all four courses and are approved for admission to the LL.M. Program in U.S., International & Transnational Law, they can complete the LL.M. degree in Chicago by spending one semester at Chicago-Kent.
Students also have the option to stay for an additional Chicago semester at a reduced tuition rate.

For the 2013/14 academic year, CMU and Chicago-Kent will offer courses in Introduction to the American Legal System, Introduction to Legal Research and Writing, International Business Transactions and Business Organizations, and Overview of Intellectual Property Law. All courses are taught in English and are offered in a two-week intensive format over 10 days, 3 to 4 hours of class each day.
Applicants must be proficient in English and either hold a first degree in law or have made substantial progress towards their first degree in law. For students who are admitted and later enrolled in the LL.M. program at Chicago-Kent, but who have not yet completed their first degree in law, Chicago-Kent will hold their LL.M. degree until their home school verifies that the student has completed their first degree in law. Admission to the Chicago semester is based on a students’ academic performance in the four courses offered at CMU and English language skills. All applicants to Chicago-Kent’s LL.M. program are required to submit a complete application, including an application form (on-line), a personal essay. law school transcripts, and two letters of recommendation. Students will submit their applications to the LL.M. program while the courses at CMU are underway.
