Tufts University's graduate school of international affairs, the Fletcher School, is planning a new Master of Laws in International Law program for next fall.
Tufts said its Fletcher School will be the only U.S. non-law school to offer an LL.M., or Master of Laws, program. The eight-course program offers students the chance to choose one of three optional tracks: public international law; international business law; and international economic law.
The program illustrates the Fletcher School's commitment to addressing the crucial role of law in international affairs," said Fletcher School dean Stephen Bosworth.
"Since its inception, the Fletcher School has taught its students to examine the broader geopolitical forces that shape international law, and the LL.M. program will now provide legal professionals with the skills to practice law with an international mindset," Bosworth said.
