As a lawyer, what will I gain from the program?

Increase your expertise in this area by being exposed to specializations in financial institutions, anti-money laundering, and compliance, not covered in law school. Network and gain new contacts as you work and engage with classmates and instructors from all over the world. Develop specific skills and balance your new expertise with practical work experience and commercial thinking to increase career opportunities. Upon completion, J.D.s will receive a Masters of Law (LL.M.).

As a non-lawyer, what will I gain from this program?

As a non-lawyer, you’ll receive the value of the legal training you need to be successful in your job without attending three years of law school. This degree, with law interwoven into the curriculum and awarded by a prestigious law school, will increase your expertise, networking capabilities, and help bolster career opportunities and personal knowledge. Upon program completion, you’ll receive a Masters of Legal Studies (MLS).
