Nova adds flexible LL.M. for attorneys

Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad College of Law has launched an LL.M. program designed for attorneys to enhance the knowledge and skills needed in today’s climate of fast-paced technological and economic growth.

Students can select their own course of study or choose one of NSU’s areas of focus, which include Business and Entrepreneurial Counseling, Health Law, Intellectual Property, Cybersecurity, and Technology Law, International Law, and Litigation and Dispute Resolution. All focus areas incorporate leadership, strategic planning, fiscal literacy, and technology as core competencies for practicing attorneys.

The program is designed to be flexible, so lawyers can participate online or on campus at convenient times to build the scope of their legal practice areas and increase overall success without putting their careers on hold.

“We are delighted to offer attorneys this opportunity to transform their law practices, help their clients solve problems, and build value in an entrepreneurial legal environment,” said NSU Law Dean, Jon M. Garon. “Our LL.M. students understand the importance of an innovative approach to the business of law, which is our hallmark.”

The LL.M. program is a one-year full-time or two-year part-time program of study offering online, on campus, or hybrid options. The program is designed with flexibility in mind, providing focused schedules that concentrate on highly valuable practice areas. NSU Law faculty and subject matter authorities with a genuine commitment to student success will teach all LL.M. classes.

“With the addition of the LL.M. to our J.D. and our four M.S. in Law programs, we now offer practical, graduate-level studies to all professionals,” said Associate Dean of Graduate and Online Programs, Susan Stephan. “The LL.M. is a key progression of legal education for lawyers, who must navigate a rapidly changing practice.”

NSU Law is accepting applications for the inaugural class, set to begin in Fall 2018.
