Integrated Cybersecurity Studies

Pioneering innovative curricula, policy relevant research, and events


The LLM degree requires a total of 24 credit hours, all of which must be completed in one academic year (constituting the fall and spring semesters).  Twelve of these hours must be concentration-specific, meaning that they are from courses approved for inclusion in this program.  In addition, students must take either a three-credit writing seminar or a two- or three-credit Directed Research Study involving a research paper.  Non-U.S. students interested in taking a U.S. state bar exam after graduation will also have to take certain bar-required courses to be eligible for such exams.

LLM Courses

A variety of courses that do not qualify towards the 12-credit requirement for this concentration nonetheless may be of special interest to concentration participants, particularly those whose career plans involve national security-related matters.  These include a substantial number of courses under the National Security Law heading (such as National Security Law: Targeting, Detention, and Prosecution Issues with Professor Steve Vladeck); Military Law; Admiralty; various upper-level Constitutional Law and Criminal Procedure courses; and Space Law & Policy courses.
