Is the online LL.M. program right for me?
The online LL.M. program is designed for prospective students who are employed and are unable to leave their jobs to attend the on-campus program. However, note this is an online synchronous program, and as a result, the program's rigor is maintained as all courses are offered on a real-time basis. Through the use of Adobe Connect, students interact with the professor and class, ask questions, and participate in class discussions. You can learn more about application and program requirements for online students on our Online LL.M. Program Requirements page.
How long will it take to complete the program?
Students have three years (6 semesters) to complete the required 24 credit hours.
All required courses touching on space, cyber and telecommunications law will be open for Online LL.M. program students. You can view our course offerings and online availability on our Course Descriptions page.
What happens if a class is missed?
Video recordings may be requested and made available to students in the event a "live" class must be missed for illness or unavoidable work commitments. Students must participate "live" in a minimum of 75% of the instruction of the course unless a waiver is obtained. You can learn more about application and program requirements for online students on our Online LL.M. Program Requirements page.
What technology is used to support the program?
The College of Law uses Adobe Connect in order to bring the LL.M. program online. Adobe Connect is based on Adobe Flash technology and is supported by most internet-connected devices, though there are some minimum equipment requirements to ensure the best class experience. See the System Requirements on our Program Requirements Page. Students will be provided with a UNL-owned Plantronics speakerpod device, containing a high quality echo-cancelling microphone and a speaker. We ask that students use only the provided audio equipment, to help us provide the most consistent experience possible.
