WELCOME LETTER FROM THE ASSOCIATE DEAN OF INTERNATIONAL & GRADUATE STUDIES
Miami is the most international city in the United States. It is geographically closer to more countries than any other major city in the U.S. and is an international hub for trade, finance, law, education, and culture. It has great weather, beaches, shopping, sports, night life, food, and people. Miami sits on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean and trades with the world. Downtown Miami, the Port of Miami, and South Beach are all near the FIU campus, just short drives away. There is no better city to spend a year as an international student studying law.
Florida International University College of Law is a vibrant, academically rigorous, and successful member of Florida’s State University System. It is the only public law school in Miami. FIU Law and its students have won numerous awards on the national level. FIU Law students pass the bar examination at very high rates, and our full-time professors are recognized international scholars. The College now invites lawyers trained in other jurisdictions to study for our LL.M. during the 2014-2015 academic year.
All the details you need to apply are found on these pages. If you wish to join our group of bold and precise thinkers, active scholars, exacting teachers, and dedicated students, we welcome your application. The LL.M. at FIU will change your view of the law and your life. I look forward to welcoming you to Miami!
