Academics

Double LL.M. with the Catholic University of Lyon

In cooperation with the Catholic University of Lyon (Université Catholique de Lyon), the University at Buffalo School of Law provides the opportunity to earn two separate LL.M. degrees in a single academic year.

Students in this program take courses at UCL in the fall semester, from September to December, and then they take courses at the School of Law from January to May. At the conclusion of two semesters’ work, they receive two LL.M. degrees. 

Taught entirely in English, the Catholic University of Lyon's (UCL) program in international business takes advantage of Lyon's position in the heart of Europe, with easy access to international and European institutions.

The University at Buffalo School of Law is the only law school in the State University of New York system. Situated on the international border with Canada, Buffalo is an outstanding place to become the legal professional you aspire to be. Our law school is at the crossroads of an internationally ranked research university and a vibrant midsize legal community. The School of Law provides international students with the opportunity to benefit from a wide-ranging curriculum taught by world-class faculty.

Participants gain not only two LL.M. degrees and the exposure to different perspectives on law, but also the valuable experience of living and studying in both France and New York, and opportunities to network across professional communities in the global marketplace.
