Students must complete 24 units over four terms to earn the Online LL.M. degree: Fall I (September-October), Fall II (November-December), Spring (March-April), and Summer (May-June).

The Online LL.M. is separate from Temple Law’s in-person LL.M. for Foreign Trained Lawyers offered in Philadelphia, and in-person and online students may not transfer between programs. However, Online LL.M. students are welcome to attend Temple’s in-person Summer Abroad in Rome program as a substitute for the Online LL.M. summer term.

Students must take a minimum of three courses during each of the terms, and there is no option to take fewer than three courses in any term. However, students may apply to take additional electives course, if offered.

All courses are taught synchronously, and students must attend classes in accordance with the law school’s attendance policy to earn credit. Students must attend a minimum of 80% of the regularly scheduled class hours in a course to be considered in regular attendance. Faculty members may impose more stringent attendance requirements for a particular course.

The courses listed below are representative of the courses to be offered in any given year and may vary depending upon student interest and faculty availability.
