J.D. Certificate Program in Business Law
The Business Law Certificate Program allows students to explore a broad range of business-related topics to begin a successful career as a business lawyer. A graduate has a solid understanding of the basic principles of business and commercial law and is familiar with the increasingly complex regulatory environment that business lawyers commonly encounter in practice. The curriculum includes traditional subjects such as business organizations, securities regulation, and taxation. It also allows students to focus on individual interests by including an extensive array of elective courses such as E-Commerce, International Capital Markets, Employment Relationships, and Futures Regulation.
The Program requires a total of 24 credit hours emphasizing both theory and practice. Students must take three required courses, two courses from a list of core courses, additional courses from a list of elective courses, a specialized legal writing course, and must complete an experiential requirement.
