Attorneys are integral to the functioning and build-up of any democratic society governed by the rule of law. Ukraine is no exception. The professional development of Ukrainian attorneys during the war will assist Ukraine tremendously in its post-war reconstruction efforts, fighting for post-war restitutions and indemnifications, and combating future potential corruption in the process of using financial aid by national and local state institutions in Ukraine now and for years to come. Moreover, a strong legal community of Ukraine will be conducive to Ukraine meeting all necessary criteria of being accepted as a member of the European Union.

Normally, American LL.M. programs cost from $70,000 to $100,000 per student (depending on the cost of living).

Because the Program is 100% free for Ukrainians, the criteria for admission will be: (a) the need for professional development presented in the application letter, b) economic and personal hardship, and (c) the desire to support Ukraine during and/or after the war (e.g., through pro bono legal assistance to war victims).

The budget for the program is estimated to be 250,000 USD. The initiative is not, in any way, financed by public institutions (state or local government) of any state. At least three coordinators will be employed to run the program full-time.

Establishing and operating the Program carries substantial costs, such as U.S. law faculty compensation, setting up a learning management system, record keeping system, cybersecurity/data privacy system, marketing the program, as well as paying tech-support personnel, accountants, coordinators, and other support staff for the duration of the program (one year).

  • The initiative is not, in any way, financed by public institutions (state or local government) of any state.
  • At least three coordinators will be employed to run the program and five assistants will help them run every-day operations.

All faculty teaching in the Program will be the best American attorneys and law professors, graduates of leading American law schools (Harvard, Princeton, Stanford, Yale, Columbia, etc.). This guarantees excellence in teaching but generates substantial costs.ย
