M.C.L. or LL.M. with a Research Focus
It is possible to pursue an M.C.L. or LL.M. with a research focus consisting of course and seminar work in the first term of enrollment and extended individual supervised research in the second term. A master’s program with a research emphasis of more than six credit hours requires permission of the Law School’s Graduate Committee. Considerations for approval include the quality of the student’s academic performance in the fall semester and the research proposal, as well as the interest and availability of faculty supervisors. Admitted students with an interest in this option should contact the Assistant Dean for International Affairs prior to their arrival in Ann Arbor.
