Four certificates concentrating on different aspects of foundational U.S. law are available to student enrolled in an LLM program. Students may choose among the Foundations of U.S. Law, U.S. Civil and Criminal Justice; Business Law and Regulation, and U.S. Law of Property Transfer.
Students are encouraged to announce their intention to seek a certificate at the beginning of their academic year; no formal application is required. Prior to graduating, you must submit the “Certificate Studies, Intention to Participate Form” to the registrar’s office. To earn a Foundational Certificate in U.S. Law students must:
- complete 12 credit hours of approved courses and
- achieve a minimum of a B average in their certificate courses.
A student can earn up to two foundational certificates within the LLM degree. Students electing to complete two foundational certificates cannot have more than one overlapping course in each foundational certificate.
