An LLM in Constitutional Law is a Master of Laws degree that is focused on the study of legal issues related to the constitution and constitutional principles. The program typically includes coursework in areas such as the structure and powers of government, individual rights and liberties, and the relationship between federal and state governments. Students also have the opportunity to study specialized topics such as judicial review, federalism, or international constitutional law.
The program typically takes one year to complete and is offered by law schools worldwide. It is typically intended for students who have already completed a first degree in LLB.
Graduates of the program may go on to work in law firms, government agencies, or international organizations, or in public defender or prosecution offices. Some may also pursue academic or research positions in universities or think-tank.
