LL.M. Program Degree Requirements

Twenty-four credit hours are required to achieve the degree of LL.M. in Business and Finance Law. Unless a waiver is obtained from the Program Directors, all degree candidates must take Law 6690-91, Thesis (4 credit hours), culminating in the production of a significant piece of legal writing. In addition, a minimum of 12 credit hours should be earned in the other courses listed under the Business and Finance Curriculum.

Non-U.S. law school graduates must also complete Law 6694, Fundamental Issues in U.S. Law, and, unless the student has completed equivalent coursework, Law 6252, Corporations. Both of these courses may be counted toward the 12 credit Business and Finance curriculum requirement.
