Emory Law to Launch LL.M. Specialization in Law and Development

Program to address the relationship between economic development and law

A new LL.M. specialization at Emory University Law School will explore the relationship between law and economic development.

Emory's new LL.M. specialization in Law and Development will help students explore the junction between economic development, law, legal frameworks and institutions.

It's aimed at a wide range of students and professionals, including public officials serving in areas connected with economic development, as well as employees of NGOs, international development consultants, and others. According to Emory, the "new program will also be an ideal initial step for those who wish to pursue an SJD degree in the field of law and development."

The program is offered through a collaboration with the Law and Development Institute, which is a nonprofit academic network whose goal is to promote studies and projects that focus on law and development. Students will have opportunities to participate in activities with the Law and Development Institute.

In terms of curriculum, no details were immediately available in terms of the new LL.M.'s classes.

For more information, please see the Emory law news release announcing the LL.M. specialization in Law and Development. You can also read about Emory's other LL.M. offerings on the school's full profile at LLM GUIDE.
