Students from across Texas and the U.S. visit our law school for 1-2 semesters to take advantage of our curricular strengths in areas such as health law, energy and environmental law, intellectual property, international law; to take courses in Texas law; to begin building their network in the Houston market; or simply to be closer to family.

J.D./LL.M. Dual Degree
The UH Law Center offers a joint J.D./LL.M. degree program which allows students to earn both degrees in 3.5 years (105 credit hours). Students who visit the UH Law Center may be eligible to participate in the program through the LL.M. Visitor Program. Students must be admitted to the LLM program prior to their visit or during their visiting semester at the Law Center. Students in the joint program must complete an additional fifteen UHLC credits after graduating from the home law school to obtain the LL.M. degree. Joint degree students must meet all J.D. requirements (from home law school) and UHLC LL.M. degree requirements in order to complete the program. LL.M. specialty programs eligible for the joint program include: Energy, Environment and Natural Resources Law, Health Law, Intellectual Property & Information Law, International Law, and Tax Law. For additional information about the LL.M. program please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Visiting students must arrange their financial aid through their home school via a consortium agreement arranged through the Office of Admissions. Assistant Director, Carla Martinez at email@example.com if you have any questions.
