        Curriculum developed with the advice of leading financial institutions and the Florida Bankers Association.

        The Juris Master in Financial Regulation and Compliance is an online, 30-credit-hour master’s in law that can be completed on a part-time basis. The program enables working professionals to gain an in-depth understanding of the law and regulations to advance their careers in today's heavily regulated financial industry.

        You will gain a strong understanding of banking law, regulatory compliance, and financial transactions. Working professionals will better understand the compliance issues surrounding their work and be able to effectively strategize for, identify, and understand potential legal and regulatory hazards. Students also gain an understanding of how to implement intelligent risk management programs and determine when legal counsel is needed.

        The curriculum is designed for compliance officers and legal risk managers, as well as for other financial professionals, including loan officers, broker-dealers, asset managers and investment bankers. Students begin their studies by taking foundational courses in Contracts, Torts, Legislation and Regulation, and Regulatory Compliance. These are all core legal areas that students are likely to encounter while working at a bank or other financial institution. Students will then proceed to study more advanced topics in courses such as: Bank Secrecy Act and Anti-Money Laundering Compliance; Consumer Compliance: Deposits, New Products and Operations; Consumer Compliance: Lending; Financial Privacy and Cybersecurity; Economic Sanctions; Broker-Dealer Regulation; and many elective courses for a specialized focus.
