ABOUT THE GENDER AND THE LAW LL.M. SPECIALIZATION: Founded by two women in 1896 to make legal education available to women, the Washington College of Law has a tradition of promoting women's full and equal participation in society. WCL established the LL.M. Specialization in Gender and the Law as part of its International Legal Studies Program in 1997. The flexibility of the Gender and the Law specialization enables students to shape a program within our International Legal Studies curriculum that fits their goals and interests. Students can pursue a course of study incorporating international, comparative, and domestic approaches to legal issues related to gender. Courses include comparative family law; sex-based discrimination; gender, cultural difference and international human rights; battered women and the law; and economic, social and cultural rights, among others. Many of our standard courses also incorporate perspectives based on gender and race. Our location in Washington, D.C. affords students the opportunity to intern for prominent non-governmental and advocacy organizations devoted to women's rights. Students can also pursue independent study and writing under faculty supervision. In addition, the program organizes conferences and events where students meet officials, policy-makers and advocates shaping the development of the women's rights agenda in different communities. Gender and the Law LL.M. students have gone on to work at the World Bank, in national women's ministries in their home countries, and for international women's rights programs around the world. Their work has been recognized and highlighted by scholarly organizations such as the Law and Society Association, as well as by the media.
