Berkeley Launches New LL.M. Certificate in Public Law & Regulation

Certificate available as part of its professional track LL.M., which is aimed at working attorneys

Beginning this year, University of California, Berkeley Law will launch a new certificate program in Public Law & Regulation, as part of the school's professional LL.M. track.

The new certificate is designed for those who are focusing on areas of governance, comparative law, and public issues. Students who complete this specialization, according to the program's webpage, "will be prepared to contribute to the public sphere wherever they go."

Interested LL.M. students must take three core public law classes, which cover topics in administrative law, policy and leadership, and constitutional law. Additionally, one additional course, in either human rights law or environmental law, is also required.

Berkeley Law's professional track LL.M. is designed for working attorneys, and takes place over two consecutive summers. Besides the new Public Law & Regulation certificate, the program also offers a certificate in Law & Technology—which covers topics in intellectual property—and one in Business Law.

Scholarships are available for qualified students who pursue the new Public Law & Regulation certificate. 

For more information, please see Berkeley Law's LL.M. certificate in Public Law & Regulation webpage.
