“It took us a long time to conceptualize this unique program. This will be the first international LL.M. program launched by a U.S. law school specifically for lawyers in developing countries who are interested in an international career. We want to extend this opportunity to a carefully selected group of 50 international students from developing countries this year and create outstanding learning & career outcomes for each of them.”

Dean Robert Ahdieh

“There is a great deal of legal talent in developing countries, but they often struggle to access high quality international legal education. Often, it is a question of affordability, which we will address through this program. Personally, I look forward to contributing to the development of international legal scholarship, creating a pool of international lawyers who understand the U.S. legal system and can contribute to growing cooperation between the U.S. and their nations.”

Srividhya Ragavan Senior Professor, School of Law, TAMU
