Degree Requirements Applicants for admission must be admitted to a state bar in the United States and/or hold a Juris Doctor degree from a law school accredited by the American Bar Association, and/or have graduated from a recognized university in a non-United States jurisdiction, and/or have been admitted to practice in a non-United States jurisdiction, and/or hold a recognized and relevant university degree in field other than law (such as business, accounting, economics, and international relations). Candidates for the degree must complete 21 credits through a combination of two-week residential sessions in Salzburg, Warsaw, Boston, and/or Shanghai and distance-learning courses. The residential sessions offer 6 credits and 9 credits in Salzburg, 9 credits in Boston, and 3 credits each in Warsaw and Shanghai. Four distance-learning courses (9 credits in total) also are available. Courses rotate at each residential session on a three-year schedule, e.g., it is possible to complete 18 credits over three years of spring Salzburg sessions or 18 credits over two years of summer Salzburg and Boston sessions. Students also may gain 3 credits by attending 30 hours of continuing legal education sessions conducted by the Center for International Legal Studies. Each session in Salzburg, Boston, Shangahi, and Warsaw concludes with examinations evaluated on an optional graded or pass/fail basis. If an examination is failed, the candidate may petition to (a) retake the examination, (b) repeat the course or take an alternate course at the appropriate session, or (c) gain the required credits by participating in a continuing legal education program conducted by the Center for International Legal Studies (if the candidate has already utilized, or intends to utilize, continuing legal education credits to complete 3 credits for the degree, an additional continuing legal education program will be required to remove the failing grade). Candidates who elect to be graded and achieve a cumulative grade point average of 4.5 (B+) over the required courses will graduate with an LL.M. with Honors. Candidates who elect to be graded and who achieve a cumulative grade point average of 4.75 (A-) over the required courses will graduate with an LL.M. with High Honors.
