Equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to handle the regulatory, transactional and compliance needs of financial services clients in today’s global economy, our graduates hold influential positions worldwide—in banks, governments, law firms, corporations, financial institutions, and multilateral and nongovernmental organizations. Since conferring our first LLM in Banking & Financial Law in 1984, our program remains the only financial services LLM program in the country with its own faculty and a curriculum designed exclusively for graduate study.
The program of study, focusing on regulatory courses and transactional courses in the areas of banking law, securities law, and general financial services law, leads to the degree of Master of Laws in Banking and Financial Law. Students may also choose to focus their studies in one of the available program concentrations.
Beyond the classroom, students can supplement their coursework by focusing on the financial services issues of the day through lectures, conferences, and roundtable discussions. A number of these conferences and lectures are co-sponsored with groups such as the American Bar Association, the Boston Bar Association, and The Clearing House Association.
