Fordham to offer first fully online LL.M. in Corporate Compliance

If you want to get a law degree in an emerging practice area without having to leave your couch, you’re in luck.  Fordham University School of Law recently announced that it will soon be offering a fully online LL.M. degree in Corporate Compliance. 

 “We are very excited to offer a compliance LL.M. degree in a format that is more accessible to lawyers across the globe,” Robert Mascola, Senior Director of Compliance Programs at Fordham Law said. “We are building on the success of our in-person LL.M. programs and on our experience with online degree programs to ensure an outstanding educational, professional, and personal experience for our students.”

The online program consists of videos, lectures, and questions that students watch on their own time throughout the week, but students will also participate in weekly live sessions with professors to discuss that week's material.

This unique program prepares candidates to respond effectively to new and complex regulatory demands. Students will learn the basic regulatory framework, especially in the banking and financial regulatory industries, and will be trained in the skills that are essential for any compliance professional.

Each student is required to complete a minimum of 24 credits of approved courses. Students may take 2-15 credits per semester and can complete the program in as few as two or as many as seven semesters.

This online LL.M. degree is not replacing the one offered on campus and in order to be eligible for the bar exam students must complete the on campus LLM degree in Corporate Compliance.
