With an enrollment of 8,300 students, university-wide, life at Duquesne is designed to help prepare you for anything, professionally, personally, and beyond.

The Duquesne Kline School of Law is located right in downtown Pittsburgh, so students can benefit from the short walking distance to firms or the courts when participating in externships. Pittsburgh is a vibrant American city with lots of great architecture, a diverse collection of art and culture ventures, friendly neighborhoods, good food, many night life opportunities, famous sports teams, and is regularly ranked as one of the most affordable metropolitan areas in the United States.

LL.M. Program 

The Thomas R. Kline School of Law of Duquesne University offers a Master of Laws “LL.M.” degree for candidates who have earned a first degree in law (for example LL.B.) outside the United States.

The relatively modest size of the LL.M. program allows for students to receive individual attention within the friendly Duquesne community. The University’s Center for Global Engagement offers extensive programs and comprehensive English as a Second Language (ESL) courses.
Duquesne Kline School of Law offers both a General Curriculum and a Bar-Track Curriculum. Both provide opportunities to study and improve legal research, writing, and analytical skills in the context of US-American federal and state law.
