In Fall 2022, Temple Law welcomed 63 international students, the largest cohort in recent history. The students represent 27 countries and five continents, with 44% of the class hailing from Asia/Middle East, 41% from Europe, 11% from South America, and 4% from Africa.

“We are delighted to welcome such a wonderfully diverse group of international students,” said John Smagula, Assistant Dean for Graduate & International Programs, “and I am very grateful to our law school dean, faculty, and staff, and in particular my office colleagues Karen McMichael, Farlistcity El-Baker, and Joel Houkom, for all of their work to make our Master of Laws program second to none.” 

The Master of Laws (LLM) for Foreign-Trained Lawyers program is currently accepting applications for the spring 2023 semester. Please contact the Office of Graduate & International Programs at for more information.
