|The University of Georgia LL.M. Program Ц Research assistants receive tuition waivers and a stipend
Back to top
The University of Georgia LL.M. Program offers a limited number of qualified and highly motivated individuals who already hold law degrees (approximately 15 students per year) the opportunity to pursue an individually-fashioned program of intensive research and related course work in areas of law in which the particular student wishes to specialize. International graduate students should expect to acquire and expand their knowledge of the legal systems in the United States.
The University of Georgia is a state university which benefits from generous financial support from the people of Georgia. Accordingly, tuition costs are substantially lower than at many comparable institutions. The location of the university in the college town of Athens means that housing, meals, and other costs are lower for students.
Scholarships and Assistantships for LL.M. Students
The Dean Rusk Center - International, Comparative and Graduate Legal Studies offers two forms of financial assistance to incoming LL.M. students. The first is called Graduate Assistantships, of which
several are awarded per year. Under this program, students receive tuition waivers and a stipend in exchange for their work as research assistants. The second form of assistance is called a Regents' Tuition Equalization Scholarship, an award that significantly reduces the costs of tuition by awarding students a status equal to that of State of Georgia residents. Several of these scholarships can be awarded yearly to admitted LL.M. students who come on a J-1 or F-1 visa.
Applications may be submitted online at www.gradsch.uga.edu/admissions/
Deadline for application is March 15.
