George Washington University Launches LL.M. Specialization in National Security and Cybersecurity Law

New specialization to launch in the fall of 2018

George Washington University Law School has announced plans to launch a new LL.M. specialization in National Security and Cybersecurity Law, according to the school.

With the new specialization, the school plans to leverage its Washington, DC location to help students understand core concepts in national security and cybersecurity law. Additionally, the curriculum will touch on a range of other topics, with classes like "Information Privacy Law," "E-Commerce," and "Counterterrorism Law," among others.

The new LL.M. specialization comes just over a year after the school opened its Cybersecurity Initiative, which puts on public events and publishes research in the cybersecurity space. 

An increasing number of law schools, mostly in the US, are offering LL.M. programs in Cybersecurity, which promise to help students hone their expertise in this burgeoning area of law. In 2016, the University of Maryland launched an LL.M. in Cybersecurity; Loyola Law School in Los Angeles also offers a similar program, while the New York-based Albany Law School recently announced an Online LL.M. in Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Law.

George Washington's new LL.M. specialization in National Security and Cybersecurity Law will launch this fall. Interested parties may contact llmadmissions@law.gwu.edu or apply for the program.
