LL.M. in Elder Law

The LL.M. in Elder Law builds on the strengths of the KU School of Law's existing elder law curriculum by expanding course offerings and clinical opportunities, and incorporating a faculty-supervised thesis focused on an elder law topic. The objective of the program is to produce graduates who are both knowledgeable and proficient in the law that affects elder citizens.

Qualified candidates must meet the following standards for admission:

  • a J.D. from an ABA-accredited law school
  • a minimum 2.5 GPA in J.D. course work (4.0 scale, potentially waivable if applicant has been out of law school more than 5 years)
  • other criteria, including a demonstrated interest in elder law and the potential to complete the program successfully

Once admitted, candidates may begin the program in the fall, spring or summer, although fall is preferred. The program may be completed on a part- or full-time basis.
