Georgetown Launches Two New Online Law Programs

New offerings include an LL.M in securities and financial regulation and a Master's in Law for non-attorney tax professionals

Georgetown Law has announced that beginning this fall, it will offer two new online master's programs. The new programs include an LL.M. in Securities and Financial Regulation and a Master of Studies in Law for non-attorney tax professionals.

The new online LL.M. program in Securities and Financial Regulation will cover core subjects such as securities regulation, and will also include courses addressing topics like banking law, corporate governance, financial derivatives, commodity futures markets and securities litigation, among others. 

This program is open to applicants who hold a US law degree, or its equivalent from a foreign university. The requirements of the program are identical to Georgetown's in-class LL.M. in Securities and Financial Regulation; the online version allows students to complete the degree at their own pace.

Georgetown's other new online program is a Master of Studies in Law program aimed at non-attorneys working in taxation, such as accountants, economists and actuaries. Applicants to this program will generally hold an advanced degree in accounting, finance or a related field, and have a minimum of three years of work experience.

Georgetown Law also offers a range of other online tax law programs, including an Executive LL.M. in Taxation and a Certificate in International Taxation. For more information, please see Georgetown Law's online degree programs, certificates and courses webpage.
