Master Of Laws

The Master of Laws is an advanced academic degree, pursued by those holding a professional law degree, and is commonly abbreviated LL.M. (also LLM) from its Latin name, Legum Magister, where the double L stands for the Latin plural, because both profane and ecclesiastical law are included. (For female students, the less common variant Legum Magistra may also be used.) The University of Oxford names its taught masters of laws B.C.L. (Bachelor of Civil Law) and MJur (Magister Juris), is named either MPhil (Master of Philosophy) or MSt (Master of Studies).

Famous quotes containing the words master of, laws and/or master:

    The day is for mistake and error, sequence of time for success and carrying out. The one who anticipates is master of the day.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    Surely the fates are forever kind, though Nature’s laws are more immutable than any despot’s, yet to man’s daily life they rarely seem rigid, but permit him to relax with license in summer weather. He is not harshly reminded of the things he may not do.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Better to master a small skill than to accumulate a big fortune.
    Chinese proverb.
