An invitation from Dean Chris Guthrie

In 2001, I visited Vanderbilt for the first time as a faculty candidate—and discovered an environment unique among American law schools.

Collegial and supportive, challenging and academically rigorous, Vanderbilt offers a community where all of the elements required to create a great law school come together in ways that surpass expectations. I joined this community in 2002 because here great scholars and teachers thrive. As Dean of Vanderbilt Law School, one of my top priorities is maintaining the strong sense of community that sets Vanderbilt apart from other law schools.

Experience it and you will find compelling reasons to make Vanderbilt your law school. You’ll find talented students from across the nation and a welcoming network of alumni who live and work around the globe. You’ll find a distinguished faculty of experts who are leaders in their fields, a rigorous curriculum, and a wide array of academic, dual-degree and interdisciplinary programs, in a modern building on a beautiful campus in a vibrant city. Most importantly, you’ll find an extraordinarily collegial and collaborative school culture, the hallmark of a Vanderbilt legal education that our students have treasured for decades.

You’ll discover that Vanderbilt stands apart for the quality of the legal training delivered by our faculty of renowned legal scholars and teachers. Our academic programs go beyond providing outstanding training and connect legal theory to real-world strategies, knowledge and experiences. That approach provides immediate advantages when you interview for legal positions and begin practicing law.

Finally, you’ll find yourself at home in one of America’s most livable cities. Like few other places, Vanderbilt’s Nashville setting lets you balance the rigors of study with abundant opportunities to enjoy a city with a remarkable blend of cosmopolitan sophistication and the feel of a friendly small town.

I invite you to visit Vanderbilt—and discover these things for yourself.

Sincerely yours,

VANDERBILT LAW | 01

Learning to think like a lawyer remains the bedrock of a sound legal education. Vanderbilt’s faculty is known for teaching students the rigorous analytic and problemsolving skills used by legal professionals. Consistently ranked among the most productive in the nation, Vanderbilt Law professors are known nationally and internationally for their work in such areas as corporate and business law, law and economics, international law, environmental and property law, energy law, intellectual property law, criminal law, complex litigation, constitutional law, law and neuroscience, social justice, health law and policy, and bioethics.

Vanderbilt’s faculty ranked ninth among U.S. law schools in a study, “Scholarly Impact of Law Faculties in 2021: Updating Leiter Scores to Rank the Top Third,” conducted by a team led by University of St. Thomas Professor Gregory Sisk. The ranking is based on citations of faculty work over the past five years.

As a result, Vanderbilt students learn about the law from some of the nation’s leading legal scholars. Faculty expertise translates into engaging coursework that takes students to the cutting edge of current legal scholarship. More than that, Vanderbilt faculty are committed teachers and mentors, and our school’s small size allows students to enjoy substantial access to faculty throughout their time in law school. The availability of faculty to work with and come to know students as individuals both in and out of class adds greatly to the value of a Vanderbilt legal education.

Vanderbilt stands out for its strong tradition of academic excellence and its open-door policy—professors welcome students after class and during office hours. The faculty exceeded my expectations, and the experience of being surrounded by thoughtful, open-minded professors and colleagues who shared my passion for law was exciting.

I definitely recommend Vanderbilt’s LL.M. program to foreign students who want to go back to their home countries. I gained deeper knowledge of my specialty, corporate law, while learning about another legal system, and my LL.M. classes at Vanderbilt pushed my boundaries intellectually. It was fascinating to learn how similar legal systems are, and Professor Yesha Yadav’s Securities Regulation class opened up an entire new career path for me.

The reality lawyers now face is that an increasingly important share of the global economy is intangible, and that means a much greater role for intellectual property. In addition, a global economy means a flat world in which international law means at least as much as domestic law for many lawyers. Those are the foundations of Vanderbilt’s Intellectual Property Program.

My career goal is to work in an international law firm specializing in intellectual property and the new technologies. At Vanderbilt, I could earn an LL.M. at a prestigious American law school with a strong IP program and take my classes with J.D. students.

An outstanding classroom experience.

Vanderbilt Law professors use the Socratic method to engage students in thoughtful dialogues during class. By participating in classroom discussions with professors and J.D. students, LL.M. students learn to think on their feet as they improve their legal English and other critical skills.

Vanderbilt students are creative, thoughtful and engaged in the classroom. As a faculty, we care deeply about teaching, and we challenge our students to improve and grow.

All LL.M. and first-year J.D. students begin their studies with The Life of the Law, an intensive introductory course in which students learn about the structure of American government and the American legal system. They also acquire techniques and strategies for learning the law, such as analytical reasoning, and reading and briefing cases. Finally, the class introduces the Socratic method of teaching and offers small-group exercises.

Choose Your Course of Study

The Vanderbilt faculty’s broad range of expertise allows LL.M. students to study virtually any area of law, including international intellectual property, litigation, constitutional law, criminal justice, health policy and environmental law, through programs that connect rigorous intellectual training in legal theory to 21st century law practice. Students choose one of three tracks within the LL.M. degree program:

n In the Course Track , students focus exclusively on coursework, choosing their courses from the law school’s extensive curriculum. A faculty adviser or a law school administrator will help you tailor your academic program to your career goals and intellectual interests.

n The Law and Business Track is specifically designed for students who seek intensive academic and professional training in corporate law, securities regulation, finance, accounting, and the principles of corporate governance. Students develop an understanding not only of the legal and regulatory environment in which businesses operate, but also of corporate governance, the principles of finance and accounting, and the economic and financial frameworks of transactions. Students enrolled in this track earn a certificate in Law and Business in addition to the LL.M degree.

n The Thesis Track is designed for students who have a well-developed research focus and wish to work closely with one or more Vanderbilt law professors to complete a substantial research project that culminates in a scholarly paper. In this track, you will work closely with a faculty adviser with expertise in your area of study while choosing courses that support your research interests, conducting legal research, and writing a scholarly paper.

Vanderbilt’s LL.M. program provided me with an invaluable cultural experience and the opportunity to explore the basics of common law. Our American clients like to see that we know where they are coming from when working on cross-border matters. I liked the focus on the practice of law, and Vanderbilt’s faculty is exceptional.

Sören practiced law at Bird & Bird in Munich before earning his LL.M. at Vanderbilt, which he chose because of its high rankings and strong intellectual property curriculum. “U.S. LL.M. degrees are highly regarded in Germany because it shows employers, both law firms and companies, that you know how to work in an international environment,” he said. “The cultural experience, fluency in English and basic knowledge in a common-law jurisdiction give you a competitive edge.”

Sören especially enjoyed his Intellectual Property Survey class with Professor Joseph Fishman. “Professor Fishman is an amazing teacher, and the course gives you an overview of all of the basics of U.S. intellectual property law,” he said. He described his short course in Trademark Law as “very dense and challenging—you learn what you need to know about U.S. trademark law in a single week!”

Collegial culture, global outlook

Law graduates must be team players, and Vanderbilt’s wellestablished culture promotes collaboration in a challenging learning environment. Students choose Vanderbilt for its long-standing reputation for collegiality, professionalism and relationship building, and because they recognize that mutual support, teamwork and respect for others’ views are essential to professional success. In fact, our students and alumni consistently say that the strong sense of community among their colleagues here is one of the most valuable and enduring aspects of a Vanderbilt legal education.

Law practice is increasingly global, and Vanderbilt’s LL.M. program prepares graduates for legal practice in a world in which few lawyers work only with the laws of a single nation. Our LL.M. students benefit from Vanderbilt’s broad curriculum, small-school culture, and interactive classes in which they study alongside J.D. students in an enriched learning environment.

Marcella’s firm offered her a scholarship to earn an LL.M. in the U.S. “When I researched law schools, it was clear that Vanderbilt was top-ranked, classes are small, and I would be studying with J.D. students,” she said.

Vanderbilt LL.M. students benefit from an intensive program designed to provide the language and academic skills they need to succeed in a demanding educational program at a top U.S. law school. The program begins with a four-week introductory course at the law school during the summer, scheduled before your LL.M. courses begin.

communication, small-group discussions, legal research and scholarly writing. You’ll also practice responding quickly and concisely in large-group discussions.

To enhance your academic training, your classes in Legal English continue throughout your year of study at Vanderbilt. These extra classes increase your exposure to the language of U.S. law while you learn American legal principles and precepts in your law classes.

During the fall semester, all LL.M. students take Introduction to Legal Research and Writing in the United States, a course that provides a distinct academic forum in which LL.M. students learn:

n How to conduct legal research in the U.S.

n The fundamental, generally accepted conventions of written legal analysis and citation in the U.S.

n The basic vocabulary of legal analysis and advocacy in the U.S.

I thought the experience of meeting other lawyers from around the world and experiencing a U.S. college experience would be life-enriching. I was right! The caliber of teaching at Vanderbilt is very high—it’s like being in court every day! You have to go to class really prepared. All of my professors were extremely knowledgeable and approachable— they are all dynamic public speakers, and they use the Socratic teaching method to get the most out of every class.

Connect theory to practice.

Vanderbilt is a leader in designing innovative academic programs and coursework that connect outstanding theoretical training with 21st century law practice. LL.M. students join first-year J.D. students during orientation week for The Life of the Law, an intensive one-week class in which students learn core concepts relevant to American

legal education, including the structure of the U.S. government and legal system, cross-cutting legal doctrines, and interdisciplinary approaches to legal analysis. The class prepares you for the rigorous theoretical training you will receive during your LL.M. year.

I wanted to learn more about U.S. law in theory and in practice so I could focus on international transactions. I learned so much at Vanderbilt about the fundamentals of American law and the U.S. legal system—and how they affect American society and its view of the rest of the world. My year at Vanderbilt was an enriching experience on many levels.

EDWARD CHENG’S search for innovative alternatives that would promote more discussion among scholars of legal evidence law led him to launch a podcast, Excited Utterance, in fall 2016. The podcast’s name alludes to a wellknown exception to the “hearsay rule” in evidence law, and the format is simple: In each podcast, Professor Cheng interviews another legal scholar about their current research. He now has more than 8,000 subscribers, and the more than 100 podcasts produced since he launched the program address such topics as profile evidence, fingerprint evidence, the implications of body cameras worn by police officers, problems with the quality of evidence produced by police laboratories, expert testimony and the use of scientific evidence in court. Professor Cheng hopes the podcast will make scholarship focusing on evidence law more accessible to a wider audience. “A lot of research gets lost in journals because people have to invest the time in finding and reading lengthy articles,” he said. “Our listeners can become exposed to a wide variety of evidence research in 25 minutes a week, perhaps while they’re commuting or doing household chores. It’s a good format that allows the ‘evidence community’ to connect.”

Vanderbilt was a natural intellectual fit for me because it has a really amazing concentration of scholars who do interdisciplinary research.

Renowned Law and Business Program

Drawing its curriculum from Vanderbilt’s outstanding Law and Business J.D. Program, Vanderbilt’s Law and Business LL.M. Track offers intensive academic and professional training in corporate law, securities regulation, finance, accounting and the principles of corporate governance, with the goal of producing lawyers who understand the legal and regulatory environment in which businesses operate. The program includes classes focusing on such topics as corporate governance, the principles of finance and accounting, and the economic and financial frameworks of transactions.

Graduates may use their Law and Business training to pursue careers in business law, as government regulators,

or in other international posts that benefit from an excellent understanding of business law and corporate management. Because Law and Business graduates understand how businesses operate, they return to their home countries prepared to work effectively with business executives, managers and directors to navigate laws and regulations governing business activities.

Law and Business students take a core curriculum of required courses and may choose their remaining courses from among Vanderbilt’s rich array of electives, including courses in corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions, corporate restructuring, bankruptcy law, antitrust law, and secured and global transactions.

Thomas applied to Vanderbilt after Meyerlustenberg colleague Ricardo Schlatter ’15 recommended its LL.M. program. “I work in transactional law in Switzerland, and we have lots of U.S. clients,” he said. “The courses required to earn the Law and Business Certificate help you gain a better understanding of the way they think and their needs. You also take Accounting and Finance classes, which you really need to understand when you work as a business lawyer. Those courses were really helpful.”

Vanderbilt has an excellent corporate law faculty, and America has the most advanced corporate law system in the world. Lawyers from many countries can learn from that system. The Law and Business Certificate prepared me to practice corporate law as a transactional lawyer.

The program is directed by Michael Newton, who teaches International Law Practice Lab. In addition to its acclaimed full-time faculty, the program also includes experienced attorneys, judges and policymakers who teach short courses here each year.

Vanderbilt’s LL.M. program far exceeded my expectations—the number of courses, their in-depth content and the academic rigor. I acquired a solid foundation in trademark, copyright and international intellectual property law. I was also trained to use the tools needed to meet the challenges posed by artificial intelligence and robots and blockchain and quantum computing.

A culture of collaboration and competition.

Even as they challenge one another in an intensive learning environment, Vanderbilt Law students have gained a reputation for collegiality, professionalism and building relationships. That culture permeates every aspect of the law school.

In the classroom, professors take a strong interest in students and work closely with them to promote their success. Outside class, students develop as leaders and as team players by engaging in one or more of the 40 student organizations.

When you enroll in Vanderbilt Law School, you become a member of the Vanderbilt Bar Association, which manages the law school’s student

organizations and coordinates social activities. For example, the VBA matches incoming LL.M. students with J.D. mentors who share their interests, as well as providing study tips, outlines and advice on summer job interviews and student activities. Vanderbilt’s student organizations serve as a hub for social events, provide co-curricular support for what students are learning in the classroom, and enable students to meet others with similar career interests and cultural backgrounds. Connecting with other students through involvement in professional, social and volunteer organizations also helps students make a healthy adjustment to the rigors of law school.

The right balance

While free time during law school can seem scarce, most students find it important to balance the demands of study by joining one or more organizations for professional advancement, personal development, community service and professional networking. Nonprofessional student organizations devoted to everything from soccer to religious fellowship to knitting are encouraged and supported. Vanderbilt University provides a wide array of services to meet your academic and personal needs. LL.M. students also receive support from a dedicated international student services coordinator.

Vanderbilt is, first and foremost, a student-centered law school. Our small size relative to other top law schools affords a more intimate learning environment, and our LL.M. program is founded on a core strength Vanderbilt has maintained for decades—quality teaching.

The law school building, which is one of the most modern and well-designed in the United States, offers universitywide Wi-Fi, high-speed networking, well-equipped classrooms, a computer lab and onsite support presence,

a new Student Services suite and comfortable student lounges. In the Massey Law Library, you’ll find quiet, comfortable study areas and staff who can help you identify available resources and find information you need in printed or electronic format.

Vanderbilt’s LL.M. program director provides year-round, personalized support to individual students, and the university’s Office of International Student and Scholar Services offers a wide array of services to meet your personal needs.

VITTORIA BRUSCHI SPERANDIO | Class of 2020 Associate Lawyer, Castro Law Firm, Londrina, Brazil

Vittoria practiced law for three years before earning her LL.M. at Vanderbilt. “I wanted to boost my career, and Vanderbilt’s LL.M. is professionally focused and academically challenging,” she said. “Vanderbilt is also known for offering a healthy environment for students. Students and faculty work together as a community.” She recommends LL.M. students take Civil Procedure. “You must be willing to work hard, but you will acquire a broad notion of American legal procedure you can apply to almost all of your other courses,” she said. “It is an important course if you plan to work in an American jurisdiction and is a heavily tested subject on the New York bar exam.”

My year at Vanderbilt was one of the most challenging years of my life, and my LL.M. was a turning point in my career—
I have job opportunities now that I did not have before.
I feel prepared to meet my clients’ needs in a broader way, and I also built a network of international connections.

A vibrant university community

Founded in 1873 with a million-dollar endowment from Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt, the university that bears his name now comprises 10 colleges and schools, including one of the nation’s top medical schools. Vanderbilt draws its more than 13,500 students from all 50 states and dozens of nations around the globe. Approximately 10 percent of Vanderbilt students are international.

There’s always something interesting to do or see here— whether it’s Southeastern Conference football, basketball or baseball games (and a host of other sports); the Performances at Vanderbilt series, which brings in top artists; movies at the on-campus Sarratt Cinema or plays in the university theater; free concerts at the Blair School of Music; or lectures by worldrenowned scholars and leaders at the law school or elsewhere on campus.

Law students can unwind at the Vanderbilt recreation and wellness center, which offers seven acres of outdoor space, including tennis courts and soccer fields, and 130,000 square feet of indoor facilities, including a swimming pool, fitness training facilities, racquetball courts and classes in weight training, rock climbing, dance and yoga, among other options.

The intramural program includes more than 40 sports, and law students regularly form teams to participate. They also enjoy the camping, rock climbing, spelunking and kayaking trips sponsored by the Outdoor Recreation Center.

Vanderbilt University comprises 10 schools, all on the university’s Nashville campus. In addition to Vanderbilt Law School, the university includes: Blair School of Music Owen Graduate School of Management

Students enjoy watching Vanderbilt’s athletic teams face off against opponents in the Southeastern Conference. Vanderbilt has a long and storied college football history, and students have prime seating for men’s and women’s basketball games in Memorial Gym, a venerable venue that has been dubbed “the Fenway Park of college basketball.” Vanderbilt is considered one of the top universities for baseball.

Cool city. Hot prospects.

They still call it “Music City,” but Nashville has earned a few other distinctions. It’s perennially on the list of America’s friendliest cities. It has been named the nation’s No. 1 smartest place to live.

With more than 100 health care companies, it has been called the industry’s “Silicon Valley.” It’s an insurance capital. A publishing capital. A financial capital. A tourist destination. And a dynamic state capital.

Meanwhile, it’s a vibrant, cosmopolitan place that blends a growing international flavor (more than 80 languages are spoken here) with traditional Southern hospitality and the laid-back feel of the West Coast.

All of that helps make Nashville a great place to gain your legal education.

In Nashville, you always have a banquet of tempting options. Take your pick of buzzing nightspots and incredible live music, from downtown honky-tonks to the famous Bluebird Café, a world-class symphony, bluegrass legends at The Station Inn, club shows of every persuasion or whoever’s playing tonight at the historic Ryman Auditorium.

Beyond Nashville’s famous hot chicken, there are so many must-try restaurants—representing a broad array of genres, innovations and corners of the world—that The Wall Street Journal calls Nashville “a culinary powerhouse.”

Savor four distinct seasons in Nashville’s beautiful parks and on hundreds of miles of trails and greenways. Take in an NFL game with the Tennessee Titans or an NHL game with the Nashville Predators. Or major league soccer. Or minor league baseball. Or big-time college sports just a stroll across the campus.

Sure, you can be bored here. But you’ll have to work very, very hard at it.
