The LL.M. in Federal Criminal Practice and Procedure is the only program in the nation designed for law school graduates seeking to prepare themselves for federal criminal practice as a prosecutor, Federal Defender, or private defense counsel.
The unique curriculum, designed and taught by a faculty with substantial experience in both federal criminal practice and legal education, focuses on preparing students for federal criminal practice in the full range of federal cases, from “white collar crime” cases to narcotics, firearms, immigration, and terrorism cases. The program employs a variety of instructional methods, including simulation exercises, a clinical field placement, writing assignments, and classroom instruction. The depth and breadth of the course work exceeds and complements the coverage of federal criminal practice typically offered by J.D. programs.
