University rank #28 (BCR) New York City, NY, United States
The specialized LLM in International Business Regulation, Litigation and Arbitration from New York University is designed for US and foreign-trained lawyers with interests in financial, business, and commercial law in a transnational context. 


Those who aspire to be entrepreneurial leaders of industry or the private bar, or advisers to governments, international organizations or NGOs, study with some of the world’s leading experts on the multi-jurisdictional and global regulation of trade in goods, services, and capital flows. Through intensive coursework, students develop an intellectual toolbox for future careers in an age of economic globalization.

This full-time LLM in International Business Regulation, Litigation and Arbitration from New York University trains students to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of existing forms of public and private regulation, and to utilize litigation and arbitration as enforcement tools or as strategies to produce changes in the law. Unlike a course of study in corporate law, focus is given not only to shaping contracts and transactions, but also to solving disputes that arise in a transnational setting. 

Outstanding international law and business law professors are joined by faculty who teach securities regulation, banking and financial services, transnational litigation, international commercial and foreign investment arbitration, comparative and international antitrust regulation, international bankruptcy, trade law, civil procedure, and business-related subjects. Professors’ expertise in these areas is integrated with the diverse social and economic issues that policy makers and others consider.
