Georgia State University College of Law is debuting an LL.M. program for U.S.-trained lawyers, offering a general degree as well as specializations in health, environmental and land-use or intellectual property law.

The school first launched a Master of Laws program in 2015 with a course for foreign-educated lawyers seeking a Georgia bar license. A 2014 rule change from the Georgia Office of Bar Admissions meant that a one-year LL.M. from a Georgia law school focused on bar prep could qualify foreign-licensed lawyers to take the state bar exam. Before, they had to earn a J.D. from a U.S. law school.
