Specialized Fields of Study

Penn State Law students gain core knowledge and basic skills in the first-year curriculum and students in their second and third year have the option to concentrate their studies in one or more of the law school's 21 specialized fields of study. LL.M. students can take courses in any of our specialized fields of study during their one-year program.
