The University of Nebraska College of Law's online LL.M. program is the only program of its kind in the United States.

This 6 semester, part-time online program was created for employed individuals unable to leave their job but have a desire to respond to the growing demand for experienced practitioners in space and cyber law.

You'll "attend" classes synchronously with students who attend on-campus, with full capabilities to ask questions and participate in discussions. Coursework and thesis requirements will be the same as on-campus students with the benefit of a longer period of time to complete.

Transfer Credits

Each degree program within the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is responsible for evaluating transfer credit and determining how the credit will apply to your specific degree program.

The evaluation of transfer credit is based on a review of the comparability of the nature, content and level of the learning experience and its appropriateness to the degree program.

If you're interested in transferring credit, you will need to consult with the UNL academic department associated with your major.
