Idaho Launches LL.M in Democracy, Justice and the American Legal System

From the National Jurist:

The University of Idaho College of Law plans to launch a new LL.M. degree this fall with an emphasis in several areas including democracy, justice and the American legal system.

The program has been approved by the State Board of Education and the American Bar Association. The final step in approval is review by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.

“The addition of the LL.M. degree marks a significant academic expansion at the College of Law,” said Dean Mark L. Adams.

LL.M. students will be able to choose an emphasis in democracy, justice and the American legal system; natural resources and environmental law; business law and entrepreneurship; or litigation and alternative dispute resolution

You can read more here. One many view an LL.M in Democracy, etc. as helping to develop good world citizens, but how much practical knowledge does it give that international student? At least it gives the students an American law credential. If anyone at Idaho would like to take issue with this statement, we would be happy to post a response.
