Credits taken in this micro-credential will also count toward the student’s general LL.M. degree. Because all Micro-credit courses are also regular law school courses, and because the LL.M. degree is usually completed within 12 months, there is no limit on the number of credits that can count toward both a Micro-credential and the general LL.M degree. All Micro-Credential credits earned (with a grade of C or higher) will be valid to court toward the LL.M. degree for two years. 9 required credits for the micro-credential.
