Independent Research in Financial Services Law

Individual research under the direction of a member of the faculty. A paper suitable for publication is required. LAW 822, a required course for students seeking the LL.M. degree, is intended to provide students with a rich academic experience by challenging them to engage in a largely self-directed research and writing project to produce a paper of publishable quality relevant to the field of financial services law. Students must interact with the supervising faculty member throughout the semester, submitting outlines, drafts, and revisions before submitting the final paper. Students are expected to complete LAW 822 within one semester. If they fail to do that, they must register for the course again and pay tuition for a second semester. (Prerequisites: Instructor's and Director's consent)
