The LLM or Master of Laws is an internationally-recognized postgraduate degree in law. LLM programs are usually open to those who have first obtained a degree in law.
An LLM (Master of Laws) is a postgraduate degree for students studying law. It is usually designed for law professionals and students who want to gain knowledge in a specialized law field such as international or tax law.

The common requirements to study at a higher education level in United States will include your admissions essay (also known as the statement of purpose or personal statement), transcript of records, recommendation/reference letters, language tests
