LL.M. students may elect to take cross-listed J.D. courses both on campus and online. Most J.D. elective courses that are not subject to enrollment restrictions will be made available as LL.M. electives, allowing students to combine online LL.M. offerings with on-campus courses to result in a hybrid experience. The NSU Law Course Catalog lists specific courses.

Not all courses described will be offered during any one academic year. Students should consult semester schedules and registration information to select courses that reflect their interests and that will allow them to meet graduation requirements. If a course has additional prerequisites, those are listed as part of the course description. LL.M. students are responsible for ensuring they have taken the prerequisites for any course. Failure to have taken prerequisites may result in involuntary withdrawal from a course, with a concomitant loss of credits and possible delay of graduation.
