New Jersey's Seton Hall University School of Law has announced the launch of a new online LL.M. program in Financial Services Compliance.

The new LL.M. will cover a range of topics that are important for attorneys who want to work in the growing field of financial compliance. Course offerings include "Introduction to Corporate Finance," "Securities Regulation and Compliance," and "Governance, Compliance, Enforcement and Risk Management," among others. 

The program is positioned to tap into the growing demand for legal professionals in the financial compliance space. “Compliance remains the fastest-growing area in the financial services industry, offering new opportunities for attorneys with specialized knowledge of financial services law and compliance,” says Timothy  Glynn, Seton Hall's Associate Dean for Graduate and Professional Education.

A growing number of law schools are offering LL.M. programs in financial compliance. The UK's Warwick School of Law, for instance, offers an LL.M in International Corporate Governance and Financial Regulation, which looks at the various legal implications of regulation in the post-financial crisis era. London's BPP University offers a similar LL.M. in Financial Regulation and Compliance.

Fordham Law's LL.M. in Corporate Compliance, launched in 2014, also addresses some issues in financial compliance.

Although Seton Hall's new program is delivered primarily online, students can also take some classes on campus.
