The Duke Law LLM program offers the option of extending the period of study for one or two additional semesters.
Students may extend the Duke Law LLM program for one or even two additional semesters. This “extended LLM” option allows students to take maximum advantage of Duke Law’s extensive curriculum, complete both basic and skills courses required by the NY State bar, and enroll in more courses in Duke’s other graduate and professional schools. And having a summer between academic years offers exciting student employment and internship opportunities in the U.S.
Students may enroll in the extended LLM during the initial application process, or inform the International Studies Office that they wish to extend their program during their academic year. The latest that the request to extend the LLM can be submitted is 30 days prior to graduation.
