Northwestern Expands Accelerated LL.M. Curriculum Options

Summer-long program to be renamed to "Executive LL.M. Chicago"

Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law has announced that it will expand the curriculum options for its Accelerated LL.M. program. The program will also be renamed to "Executive LL.M. Chicago."

The program's core curriculum now covers a variety of topics, including an introduction to the American legal system, as well as classes in contracts, negotiations, and mergers & acquisitions, among others.

Additionally, the program allows students to specialize in one of two "tracks." One track includes courses in private equity, bankruptcy, and corporate criminal law; the other addresses intellectual property and competition law.

The Executive LL.M. Chicago allows international lawyers to receive an LL.M. in just one summer. Students also have the option of spreading the program out over two summers.

Applications for the program's May 2016 intake will be accepted until February 1, 2016.

For more information, please see the Northwestern news release announcing the changes to the Accelerated LL.M./Executive LL.M. Chicago.
