Denver Law offers a number of advanced degrees to supplement a student’s law degree with specialized knowledge, to introduce foreign lawyers and those educated in other disciplines or “non-attorneys” to the U.S. legal system, and/or to train students in the unique rigors of tax or legal administration. It is the goal of each of our academic programs to bridge the objectives of its students to the curriculum, and it is the University of Denver’s mission to make a meaningful impact locally, nationally and globally.

LLM Law School Recruitment Forum, sponsored by Law School Admission Council
Denver Law will be attending the LLM Law School Forum to give prospective LLM students an opportunity to talk personally with us. The LLM Forum is being held in New York City on October 18, 2014. If you are thinking about an LLM program, this is an excellent resource for you. Most people spend several hours at a forum. Regardless of your age, background, and goals, the forum can help you answer important questions.

Admission to the LLM Law School Forum is free. By preregistering, you can save time at the forum and receive reminders and updates about the forums.
