Applying for LL.M. degree

The LL.M. in Gaming Law and Regulation is a 24-credit degree program that can be completed in one academic year as a full-time student or in two academic years as a part-time student.  With special permission, students can complete the program at an accelerated or slower pace.

Offered to both foreign and domestic students, the LL.M. in Gaming Law is a rigorous academic program to advance the legal training of those who already hold a J.D., LL.B., or equivalent law degree.  The program is open to both domestic and international students.  Participants may enroll on either a full time or part time basis, but must begin their studies in the fall semester.  With special permission, students can complete the program at an accelerated or slower pace.

Accelerated Option: Students who complete gaming law courses while enrolled as a JD student at the William S. Boyd School of Law or another law school can apply up to six gaming law course credits to the LL.M. in Gaming Law and Regulation degree provided they completed the courses with a grade of "B" or better.  Under the accelerated option, an LL.M. candidate must complete 18 additional credits after receiving their JD degree. Many accelerated students choose to take 15 credits in the fall semester and the 3-credit LL.M. thesis course or the externship in the spring semester.  Under this plan, an accelerated student remains in residence at Boyd for only one additional semester before pursuing a career in gaming law.
