Case Western Reserve to Launch an Executive Master's in Financial Integrity

Program to address regulatory mechanisms to counter money laundering and terrorism

The Case Western Reserve University School of Law has announced the launch of a new Executive Master's program in Financial Integrity.

The program is intended to appeal to professionals who work on anti-money laundering, counter-terrorism, counter-proliferation financing policies and related integrity initiatives.

As such, students must have at least three years of experience in one of these fields.

The curriculum covers a variety of topics, with modules such as "International Cooperation in Civil and Criminal Matters," "Building and Prosecuting Criminal and Civil Financial Integrity Cases," and "Criminology of Financial Integrity," among others.

The program will also include a capstone research project that addresses a current problem in the student's practice.

The program is 16 months long and taught over a series of three-day weekends.

In the past few years, a number of law schools have introduced LL.M. programs addressing aspects of financial regulation, but mainly focusing on the regulatory fallout after the 2008 Financial Crisis. Georgetown offers a Securities & Financial Regulation LL.M., for example, and the London School of Economics and Political Science offers an LL.M. in Banking Law and Financial Regulation.

Case Western Reserve's Executive Master's in Financial Integrity will launch this fall.

For more information, please see CWRU's Executive Master's in Financial Integrity program webpage.
