About the Program
The LLM degree is designed for experienced domestic and international attorneys who are looking for advanced skills in legal regulatory analysis and policy pertinent to cybersecurity and data/information privacy. As the internet and cyberspace play increasingly important roles in our daily personal and business activities, and as the field becomes more heavily regulated, legal employers, including law firms, government agencies and law departments, seek lawyers with a deeper understanding of the manner in which new and developing cyber-related regulations affect their clients and business interests. LLM students must hold a JD or its international equivalent (LLB). This degree is not designed to prepare students for any Bar Exam.
