Students who enroll in the dual program will complete 15 credits from the Tecnológico de Monterrey’s School of Government and Public Transformation, and 20 credits from Washington University School of Law, for a total of 35 credits.
Upon completion of the program, students will earn two degrees:
Master of Laws (LL.M.) in Transnational Legal Practice, awarded by the Tecnológico de Monterrey’s School of Government and Public Transformation
Master of Laws (LL.M.) in U.S. Law, awarded by the Washington University School of Law
All courses are taught in English. The dual degree is a fully accredited program, with no distinction made between this program and in-person programs taught on either of the two university campuses. Students typically complete the program in two to three years (24 to 36 months) on a full- or part-time basis. Once they have successfully completed the program, graduates could be eligible to sit the California and Washington State Bar Exam.
California and Washington State Bar Exams
To practice law in the United States, all lawyers must be admitted to the bar association of the state in which they wish to practice. This dual master’s degree allows non-U.S. lawyers to take the State of California and Washington State Bar Exams, which both consist of two parts: a general exam and an examination by lawyers. Both exam parts include essay questions and performance tests, while the general exam also includes a section on multi-state law.
