Georgia joins New York and California as one of the only states to allow LL.M. students to take the state Bar Examination. The Supreme Court of Georgia amended its rules regarding who is eligible to sit for the Georgia Bar Examination to include foreign educated attorneys who complete an LL.M. degree.
This means that if you enter the 2014-2015 LL.M. class at the University of Georgia School of Law, you will be able to take the Georgia Bar Examination upon completion of your LL.M. degree. If you pass the Georgia Bar Examination and are admitted to the Bar, you will be a fully licensed attorney and able to practice law in Georgia.
The LL.M./M.B.A. can be completed in only two-and-a-half (2.5) years. This exciting option is made possible through a partnership between the School of Law and the Terry College of Business. The LL.M./M.B.A. joint-degree can prepare you to be a leader in today’s global economy.
