Financial Services Regulation Certificate (LLM)

UConn School of Law is the top destination for lawyers and students from the United States and around the world who seek serious graduate training in insurance and financial services regulation. The location in Hartford, a leading hub of the insurance industry, gives students access to insurance companies, financial services firms, law firms and regulators who work in these areas. This program enables students to combine their study in financial services regulation within the flexible curriculum of an LLM program. Students enrolled in the Insurance Law LLM program are not eligible for this certificate.

UConn Law also has a separate LLM in Insurance Law, which is the premier LL.M. program in its field in the United States. The LLM in Insurance Law program, for students who wish to devote themselves almost exclusively to insurance and financial services law, is open to both international and domestic students.
