Legum Magister

“Legum Magister” is a Latin phrase that means “Master of Laws” in English. It is a postgraduate academic degree in law, often equivalent to a Master of Laws (LL.M.) in many countries. This degree is usually pursued by individuals who have already completed their basic legal education, such as a Juris Doctor (J.D.) or its equivalent and want to specialize further in a specific area of law or gain expertise in legal research and analysis. The LL.M. or Legum Magister program usually includes advanced coursework, research, and sometimes a thesis or dissertation in the field of law.
