History

LL.M. programs at Miami Law have always been small and selective to provide a superior experience for both students and faculty.

Education

The Juris Doctor degree at Miami Law is a full-time program combining a rigorous academic curriculum with professional training in critical lawyering skills. The 88-credit degree program is a full-time program requiring three academic years of study.

Career

The Career Development Office (CDO) is staffed with nine professional counselors (all of whom are former practicing attorneys). This includes an experienced career advisor exclusively dedicated to foreign-trained law students (pictured advisor Yazmyne Eterovic). The law school also provides career guides specifically for foreign-trained attorneys.
