CHICAGO — Northwestern University School of Law will expand its graduate program in international human rights and related criminal law this fall to allow American lawyers and regular law students to earn a master’s degree, or LL.M., in the area. The Chicago-based school said in a press release that allowing additional participation in the one-year graduate program was a response to heightened interest in the area from American lawyers. In the past, the program was mainly offered only to foreign lawyers. For law students who wish to enroll, the program will add another year onto their education and require that they spend up to a semester abroad working with a criminal tribunal, foreign supreme court, internal human rights organization or other approved entity, the school said.
