Applications now being accepted; open to lawyers without finance specialization

New York Law School (NYLS) has announced it will offer an LL.M. in Financial Services Law beginning in the fall of 2009. The program is open to both foreign- and US-trained lawyers.

Along with two required courses - Regulatory Policy and Advanced Research Seminar - the new LL.M. program will offer four concentrations: Asset Management, Banking, Capital Market, and International Regulation.

According to the law school, recent JD grads "with little or no background in financial services" may begin the LL.M. program after completing two prerequisite courses.

Applications are now being accepted. For more information, please visit the NYLS website.
