The First Accelerated Executive LLM for a Global Mindset

Executive LLM Chicago

Northwestern Pritzker School of Law is proud to be the first top law school to offer an accelerated Executive LLM for experienced international lawyers who are looking to advance their careers and grow their network of global connections.

Northwestern Law’s Executive LLM Chicago Program provides the opportunity to truly focus on your studies so you can maximize your time away from work. Thanks to the accelerated nature of this program, you will earn your degree in just one summer, while living and studying in the heart of downtown Chicago, the third largest city in the U.S. and home to dozens of Fortune 500 companies.

In addition to learning from our world-class faculty, you will also learn alongside highly accomplished peers, who will enrich your cultural and legal understanding of how business is conducted across countries.


The Executive LLM Chicago is a great program, well designed for trained legal professionals.

The curriculum allows students to focus on what is truly relevant in the business/transactional legal field in the U.S. The world-class faculty members and staff are the differentiators. The law school campus could not be more beautiful, modern, and well-located. Chicago is my second home now. Overall, the program was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
