The online LL.M. in Business Law is designed for lawyers who seek advanced study in business law, securities regulation, corporate finance and financial regulation to enhance their professional credentials. The program provides advanced business law and finance training to lawyers in areas of growing demand, such as regulatory compliance, in-house counsel, transactional law, complex business litigation and financial regulation. These areas are ripe with opportunity due to changes in the legal and business landscape.
Students may choose one of three program majors:
- financial regulation and compliance
- health care regulation
- employment law and HR compliance
Students also may complete the LL.M. program without a major, allowing them to take a more general approach to their business law studies.
The online LL.M. courses incorporate high levels of student-faculty interaction through the use of interactive technology. For example, course discussion boards allow students to engage with each other and with professors. Specialized online research classes are offered to LL.M. students and online business courses are tailored to provide training in specific, professionally relevant activities.
