The Master of Laws program begins with an orientation that introduces graduate students to DePaul’s faculty, staff, library, and computer and research facilities.
Students who received legal training outside the United States also will participate in a special course introducing them to the Socratic teaching method, the differences between civil and common law, and other differences that may be encountered as a student at a U.S. law school.
