The Duke Law LLM program offers the option of extending the period of study for one or two additional semesters. This “extended LLM” option is particularly attractive to students who want to take maximum advantage of the wide variety of Duke Law School courses, as well as take courses in other Duke graduate and professional schools. It allows students to take multiple advanced level and interdisciplinary courses, while also completing the basic courses required by the New York Bar or other state Bars. 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.
