The new certificate in Financial Services Compliance at Boston University School of Law can be completed entirely online, allowing professionals both from law and other professions to study alongside their work from wherever they are.
The certificate program is taught by the same faculty on the school's Graduate Program in Banking & Financial Law.
The 12-credit certificate program, to begin in Fall 2017, builds on the school's existing Graduate Tax Program and the Executive LL.M. in International Business Law.
Courses will include Fundamentals of Compliance, Defining a Robust Financial Services Compliance Function, Financial Services Compliance & the Management of Risks, Consumer Financial Services and Banking Structure & Regulation.
Certificate program graduates who then wish to pursue a full LL.M. program and are admitted will be able to apply their 12 certificate credits to the 24-credit LL.M.
