The International Jurist has ranked Temple Law’s LL.M. programs among the nation’s best for cultural fit for students from China, Asia, and Europe, and for best overall law school experience. The rankings were presented in the inaugural issue of the magazine, which covers topics of interest to foreign attorneys studying in the United States.
“I’m pleased with this recognition for our programs,” remarked Louis Thompson, Assistant Dean for Graduate and International Programs. “We’ve taken great pride in building programs that deliver an outstanding American legal education but have a lot more to offer as well.” Thompson noted that Temple’s location in Philadelphia, the first and only World Heritage city in the United States, was also a contributing factor. “Philadelphia is a global city, but it’s also a place where everyone can feel at home,” he said. “It’s the perfect place to find both old and new.”
Temple’s international offerings include LL.M. programs in Asian Law and Transnational Law, as well as the LL.M. for Foreign Trained Lawyers, all of which are based at the Philadelphia campus. Temple also offers an LL.M. in Beijing and Tokyo. All of the programs in Philadelphia take full advantage of Temple’s nationally ranked International Law faculty, and LL.M. students work side-by-side with JD students while participating fully in life at the law school.
