About the Program
The LLM degree is designed experienced for domestic and international attorneys who are looking for advanced skills in legal regulatory analysis and policy pertinent to their practices. As the world continues to become more globalized and the business of banking and finance becomes increasingly regulated both domestically and abroad, legal employers including retail banks, investment firms, government agencies and law firms seek lawyers with deeper understanding of the complex interaction between these regulations and the industry to better serve their clients or business interests. LLM students must hold a JD or its international equivalent. This degree is not designed to prepare students for any Bar Exam.
