The only program of its kind in the world, the Insurance Law LL.M. engages students in the serious and systematic study of those aspects of law that bear upon insurance specifically and risk and responsibility more generally. The program provides students with a solid grounding in the principles of insurance and offers an array of specialized insurance and related courses. The combination of a broad base and a menu of specialized courses taught by recognized experts in the field prepares graduates to address problems of insurance, risk and responsibility in a variety of institutional settings: private law firms, regulatory agencies, insurance and other financial services companies, health care organizations, corporate law departments, and academic and non-profit institutions.
The LL.M. in Insurance Law may be earned on a full- or part-time basis. In addition to the Law School's large number of daytime offerings, core insurance law courses and a selection of related courses are offered in the late afternoon and early evening. Students may participate via video and complete the program via distance learning. J.D. students may apply for an advanced standing J.D./LL.M. degree.
