The LL.M. and J.D./LL.M. in Asian Law

Welcome from the Director

Thank you for your interest in Temple's Master of Laws (LL.M.) Degree in Asian Law. I believe that the LL.M. in Asian Law will provide you with an exciting experience for growth and learning. Please allow me to share my thoughts about why our program is particularly attractive.

First, at Temple, you will be joining an intellectually vibrant community of students and faculty interested in the role of law in Asia.  Moreover, with separate LL.M. programs for foreign-trained attorneys and transnational law, and J.D. students from many nations, our students find a community with shared interests where they can develop lasting personal and professional relationships.

Additionally, the unique structure of our Asian Law LL.M. program creates an exceptional opportunity to broaden one's experience and gain insight.  After spending the Fall semester in Philadelphia taking classes focused on the role of law in Asia, to graduate, students then must spend the Spring semester studying in of the three capitals of Asia's powerhouses: Beijing, Tokyo, or New Delhi/Delhi NCR.  With our partners Tsinghua in Beijing and Jindal in Delhi NCR - each of which has been ranked among the top law schools in its respective country - and with our campus in Tokyo, students can deepen their understanding of law, society, culture and the economy in these critical nations, while living in their increasingly globalized nerve centers.  While living in these cities may aid students in improving their ability to communicate in a foreign language, all coursework is provided with English as the language of instruction.

I hope that you decide to enroll at Temple. If you have any questions about the LL.M. program, feel free to contact me.

I look forward to seeing you at Temple Law.
Sincerely, Professor Salil Mehra
