UP LAW LAUNCHES LL.M. PROGRAM

The international LL.M. program from the law school of the Philippines’ National University.

Our Master of Laws (LL.M.) program will introduce legal practitioners, law professors, judges, and government counsel to the intricacies of the evolving body of ASEAN regional law and its relationship with Southeast Asian (including Philippine) national laws.

The Course provides adequate preparation for an increasingly cross-border regional hybrid legal system with interacting national judicial systems under the unique ASEAN Charter-based horizontal integration.
