The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy’s Master of Laws (LL.M.) is a post-graduate, full-time academic degree for legal professionals. Fletcher’s LL.M. in international law provides broad contextual understanding – not only of the law, but also of the societies and international community in which it is made, interpreted, and applied. Throughout the year-long LL.M. program, world-renowned experts in international law visit as guest speakers in the High Table series. The program is completed with a “Capstone” symposium at the Tufts University European Center in Talloires, France.
The Hitachi Center is a part of The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University.
