U. Conn. Adds Compliance LL.M. to Law Lineup

University Accepting Applications for Jan. Semester

The University of Connecticut has just expanded its School of Law’s program to add a fifth LL.M. degree: “Governance, Risk Management and Compliance.”

The new program’s recent approval by the American Bar Association, which the university announced Nov. 23, means that it is already accepting applications for classes in January.

According to the school, this program will offer “a comprehensive course of study in corporate and regulatory governance, financial and insurance-based risk management, and compliance. In addition to five required courses, students may further specialize by taking electives in the area of their choosing to fulfill the credit requirement for graduation.”

The compliance program, which builds on existing professional certificate programs that the law school offers in conjunction with the University of Connecticut School of Business, is open to attorneys with either a JD or foreign law degree. The school notes that most LL.M. students graduate after only two semesters.

This new program joins the four already offered at the University of Connecticut: Insurance Law, U.S. Legal Studies, Energy and Environmental Law, and Human Rights and Social Justice. The school also offers an Executive LL.M. in U.S. Law for those affiliated with the South Korean school Hallym University of Graduate Studies.

The law school also offers an Executive LL.M. in U.S. Law to students studying at Hallym University of Graduate Studies in Seoul, South Korea.
