Seattle University to Offer Inaugural LL.M. Programs

The university will offer programs in tribal law and technology.

Seattle University announced on March 14 that it will roll out its first two LL.M. programs in fall 2016, as well as a master of legal studies. 

The school will offer an LL.M. program in technology, focusing on privacy, financial regulation and digital commerce; an LL.M. program in tribal law, capitalizing on the school's already existing tribal law program; and a masters of legal studies geared towards non-legal professionals who want to gain knowledge in this field.

According to a press release, the school will also soon start offering an LL.M. in elder law. 

Seattle's program in tribal law will join a handful of other indigenous law programs around the world at schools like the University of Oklahoma, the University of Arizona, and the University of Sydney. A handful of other schools also offer similar LL.M.s in technology law, including the University of New Hampshire, Fordham University and Suffolk University.

Kansas University and Western New England University also offer LL.M.s in elder law. 

Applications for Seattle's new programs are due in June. Visit the school's website for more information
