University of Maryland Launches LL.M. Specializations in Cybersecurity and Crisis Management

Students will have the opportunity to gain some hands-on experience in these fields

The Francis King Carey School of Law at the University of Maryland has announced that it is adding two new specializations—in cybersecurity and crisis management—to its LL.M. program.

The new specializations were developed in cooperation with the university's Center for Health and Homeland Security (CHHS), and have been designed to help legal professionals meet emerging needs in these fields.

“The launch of these LL.M. specialties is at a key time for the emergency management and homeland security field,” says Michael Greenberger, who's the founder and director of CHHS.

“More and more our clients are seeking legal professionals who have in-depth knowledge of law and policy surrounding crisis management and cybersecurity. These are both areas that will continue to grow along with the need to prepare for and respond to natural and man-made disasters.”

The new specializations will also give students the opportunity to pursue some practical experiences by working with crisis responders and cybersecurity clients on real-world applications.

With the new specializations, Maryland joins a growing group of law schools in the Washington, DC area, including George Washington University Law School and Georgetown University Law Center, that offer LL.M. programs in the national security space.
