Fordham Law launches professional track LL.M.

Busy, foreign-trained lawyers and law graduates now have another LL.M. program option.

Fordham University School of Law has launched the professional track LL.M., a flexible executive master’s program designed for working global practitioners who may not be able to complete a traditional nine-month residency.

The program is split into two 4.5-month semesters. Students can start in either August or January, and can take up to 15 months off between the two semesters.

To be eligible to sit for the New York State bar exam, students must complete the program within two years.

Professional Track LL.M. students can also take advantage of exclusive networking opportunities with their peers as well as members of the extensive network of Fordham Law alumni around the world. Students will have a dedicated academic adviser to help them register for classes, monitor their academic progress, and facilitate their return to the program following a break in their studies.

Eight specializations are available:

  • Banking, Corporate and Finance Law
  • Corporate Compliance
  • Fashion Law
  • Intellectual Property and Information Technology
  • International Business and Trade Law
  • International Dispute Resolution
  • International Law and Justice
  • U.S. Law
