The Tecnológico de Monterrey’s School of Government and Public Transformation partnered with Washington University School of Law to deliver an online Master of Laws (LL.M.) program. Our innovative virtual campus — which combines live classes with self-paced study — allows students from anywhere in the world to participate in the program. Upon graduation, students will receive an LL.M. in U.S. Law and an LL.M. in Transnational Legal Practice, and will be eligible to take the bar exam in California and Washington state.
The faculty who teach on campus at both the Tecnológico de Monterrey and Washington University School of Law, also teach in the online program. Our curriculum develops practical and theoretical knowledge in international law and U.S. law. This dual master’s degree consists of 35 credits, which can be completed on a full- or part-time basis.
To practice law in the United States, law graduates are required to pass the Bar Exam for the state in which they would like to practice. Our dual master’s degree allows non-U.S. lawyers to take the State of California Bar Exam, which consists of two parts: a general exam and an examination by lawyers. Both exams include essay questions and performance tests, while the general exam also includes a section on multi-state law.
Our innovative and interactive virtual campus is designed to enable students to attend classes from wherever they are in the world and to advance their careers without having to put their professional and personal commitments on hold. Students collaborate during live, online classes — of no more than 15 participants — and engage with their peers and faculty in Socratic debate, the preferred method of instruction in U.S. law schools.
Tecnológico de Monterrey is accredited by The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) Commission on Colleges in awarding a master’s degree in Transnational Legal Practice from its School of Government and Public Transformation. Washington University School of Law is not accredited by SACS Commission on Colleges, and the accreditation awarded to Tecnológico de Monterrey does not extend to or include Washington University School of Law or its students. Moreover, although Tecnológico de Monterrey agrees to accept certain courses from Washington University School of Law to be applied toward an award from Tecnológico de Monterrey, the aforementioned courses may not be accepted by other colleges or universities for transfer credits, even if they appear on a Tecnológico de Monterrey transcript. The decision to accept these courses for transfer credits by any institution is made by the institution considering the acceptance of credits or courses.
