Experience Hofstra LL.M. students gain an in-depth understanding of the American legal system in a global context. During the academic year, students are exposed firsthand to the practice of law through visits with attorneys, local courts and other legal institutions. These visits allow students to better comprehend the U.S. legal system and interact with highly experienced attorneys and other legal professionals.

A native of Poland, Monika Wsolek has had little problem extending her legal career in the United States. Wsolek knew she would pursue medicine or law eventually — her mother and brother work in medicine, while her father, sister and }À>˜`v>̅iÀÊ­>Ê7œÀ`Ê7>ÀÊʍÕ`}i®Ê served the legal field — but her inclination for research and writing ultimately guided her to a legal career. “People think law is about VœÕÀÌÊ>˜`ÊÀ…i̜ÀˆV]ÊLÕÌÊÜÀˆÌˆ˜}ʈÃʍÕÃÌÊ as important,” she explains. “People }iÌʏœÃÌʈ˜Ê̅iʏi}>Ê>À}œ˜]Ê>˜`Êʅi«Ê them understand it.” While Wsolek was getting her ՘`iÀ}À>`Õ>ÌiÊ`i}ÀiiÊ>ÌÊ̅iÊÀ>ŽœÜÊ Academy Faculty of Law in Poland, she learned that her father’s application for her U.S. green card had been approved. To meet the program’s requirements, Wsolek traveled and worked each summer in the U.S. and eventually learned of Hofstra Law’s master’s program through the legal community.

When Wsolek started classes in August 2010, she was initially “shocked” by the Socratic method of teaching that so many American law schools follow. “In Europe, you sit and listen in class,” she says, “but here, you must listen and then explain legal issues to the entire class. It’s very stressful, but much more meaningful.” But her transition did not take long, and Wsolek feels part of the school community. She also audits classes beyond her required courses to get more from her experience. She believes that Hofstra Law’s faculty adds to this experience: “Professors are very approachable. In Poland, the teachers are not lawyers; they are academics who impart knowledge, but they don’t interact with students. At Hofstra Law, professors are always available to talk.”

Degree Requirements The LL.M. program in American Legal Studies requires completion of 24 credits, which may be taken full time in one academic year or part time in two academic years. Fulltime students must finish their LL.M. degree in two semesters and take 12 to 15 credits each semester.

particularly on the compliance work I was doing.” Hoxha believes that Hofstra Law’s vision for international students is excellent, and she recommends the school as a first choice for other international students: “It has all the benefits of other law schools — talented professors, helpful staff, geographic ease — but in a more convenient and financially viable way. It is an amazing experience that will open so many doors.”

Originally from Albania, Hoxha has a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Indiana Wesleyan University and work experience in the U.S. banking

All international students who do hold U.S. citizenship or a green card are fully eligible to receive federal financial aid. Scholarships for International Students Each year Hofstra Law School offers a number of merit scholarships of varying amounts to highly accomplished international LL.M. students. Additionally, Hofstra Lawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office of Financial Aid has an extensive list of external scholarship programs that international students may review when considering how best to fund their LL.M. program.

On-Campus Housing While some students choose to live off campus, on-campus housing is available. The Graduate Residence Hall, which opened in 2008, houses graduate students from various schools at Hofstra, including many law students. The living units are organized as suites with separate bedrooms surrounding a common room and small kitchenette.
