BU Law Launches International Business Law Certificate

Certificate designed for those who do not want to commit to an LL.M.

Boston University School of Law (BU Law) has announced the launch of a new "International Business Law" certificate option.

The certificate is designed for those who are working in transnational law and who do not want to commit to a full-on LL.M. program.

Those who enroll in the Certificate in Business Law must complete a minimum of 12 credits. Students can mix and match courses to match their interest. Only one course, International Business Transactions and Agreements, is required. For the remainder of the certificate, students can pursue classes from the school's Executive LL.M. program in International Business Law.

The courses are a mix of online-only and blended, which marry online learning with two-week residential sessions in Boston or Budapest. The courses can be taken in any order. 

The certificate can be completed in as few as five months.

Students who complete the Certificate of International Business Law are eligible to apply for BU Law's Executive LL.M. in International Business Law. Graduates can gain advanced standing in the program, allowing them to apply their 12 or more certificate credits towards the Executive LL.M.

For more information, please see BU Law's International Business Law certificate webpage.
