Harvard University Law School

Harvard University Law School

Harvard Law School provides unmatched opportunities to study law and related disciplines in a rigorous and collaborative environment. Harvard is distinguished by its unparalleled breadth and depth of courses and clinics, its wide array of research programs, its diverse student body drawn from around the world, and its extensive network of highly respected alumni. Beyond the law school, law students can tap into Harvard University's extraordinary resources through cross registration and a variety of social and cultural venues. Harvard Law School's faculty members are engaged in cutting-edge research and generate the most important publications across the legal curriculum, playing an unsurpassed role in influencing jurists and policy makers. Notwithstanding their high-profile endeavors, however, Harvard Law School faculty are extremely engaged with students and interact closely with LLM candidates both informally and as faculty supervisors. The Graduate Program is the division of Harvard Law School responsible for the Master of Laws (LLM) and the Doctor of Juridical Science (SJD) degrees. Through our degree programs, we are working to train the next generation of leaders in academia, private practice, government, and nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations worldwide.
