A perfect combination of academic and non-academic life — that is the essential point I would like to make about my experience in UVA’s LL.M. program.

Highly qualified faculty members, supported by a wide collection of legal resources, are exactly what UVA Law provides. In the classroom, not only are LL.M. students mixed with J.D. students, but the low number of students per class in the upper-level courses provides a more effective learning process because students can be involved more in discussion with the professor and classmates.

The program does not just concentrate on how to add value to your legal knowledge, but also on providing you with non-academic activities that can support your academic performance. Through the Peer Advisor Program, the LL.M. students are involved in a number of UVA Law community activities, including softball and learning about different aspects of American culture. More

Scholar-in-Residence Program

Each year, a few proven legal scholars are accepted as Scholars-in-Residence at the University of Virginia School of Law. Given the difficulty of choosing among a large number of qualified applicants, we limit invitations to full-time academics currently affiliated with a university who have a special need for our library resources in order to complete a well-defined research project.

Please note that our visiting scholars pay a research tuition fee. For 2013-14, this fee will be $3,500 per semester or part thereof. It is expected that this fee will rise each year. Under our program, scholars have access to the Law School's library facilities, to the legal research services WestLaw and Lexis, and to the resident faculty. Scholars may also informally audit up to two Law School courses each semester, provided there is room in the desired courses after degree students have completed registration.

Those interested in being considered for participation in the program should send their curriculum vitae, proposed dates of residence, and an outline of their proposed research program to:
