The Cleveland, Ohio-based Case Western Reserve University School (CWRU) of Law has announced the launch of a new Master of Compliance and Risk Management degree.

The program is set to arm participants with the legal tools needed to help business comply with a wide range of state, federal, and international laws and regulations. It will feature a specific focus on the healthcare industry. “The roles of compliance and risk management officers are gaining importance in most health care businesses, including, in many cases, directly reporting to the chief executive officer and board members,” according to Katharine Van Tassel, interim director of the school's graduate compliance programs.

The Master of Compliance and Risk Management will include a number of required courses, including "Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance," "Risk Assessment," and "Compliance & Risk Management Skills." Elective offerings will be available in a number of healthcare-related topics.

Alongside the launch of the Master of Compliance and Risk Management program, CWRU will also offer two related certificates: in General Certificate in Compliance and Risk Management and Certificate in Compliance and Risk Management with a Specialty in Healthcare.

The master and certificates are set to launch in the fall.
