The insurance curriculum consists of an introductory course on the principles of insurance and an array of specialized courses focusing on important aspects of insurance law and policy. Students who wish to study a specialized area of insurance law that is not presently in the curriculum may receive credit for Independent Study under the direction of a faculty member and one of the Insurance Law Center's network of practicing lawyers.
The Law School also offers a wide range of related courses. Insurance LL.M. students have the option of including up to six credits of related courses toward the required 24 credits. Not all courses are offered in every academic year. Additional information is provided with registration materials and is published each year in the Student Handbook.
The LL.M. may be pursued on a full- or part-time basis. The core insurance courses and a selection of related courses will be offered in the late afternoon or early evening. The program may also be completed via distance learning.
Classes are kept quite small in comparison with other law schools. No class exceeds 75 students. Two-thirds of the courses at the Law School have 20 or fewer students. With a full-time teaching faculty of almost 40 professors and a total teaching staff of about 70 (including adjunct and visiting lecturers and professors), the Law School has one of the lowest student-teacher ratios among U.S. law faculties. Classes typically involve a mix of discussions, Socratic questioning and lectures. Seminars often involve the presentation of papers. All faculty encourage students to participate actively in class.
Courses at the Law School are open to non-degree candidates at the discretion of the instructor and the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, on a space available basis, and upon payment of the special student fee.
