The LL.M. degree in International Business and Economic Law (IBEL) from Georgetown University is a flexible degree program designed for students interested in cross-border business activities and the regulatory regimes, national and international, that apply to them.


The International Business and Economic Law (IBEL) program from Georgetown University thus affords students the opportunity to gain exposure to the fundamentals of various U.S. regulatory regimes while remaining free to explore in greater depth the international businesses that are of particular interest to them.

The Program

IBEL students are required to take a class in Corporations, at least one class related to international regulation, and at least one class related to international business. They then choose the remainder of their “specialty credits” from over 70 courses related to business and international law. Additional elective credits may be selected from the entire curriculum.

Students desiring a comprehensive overview may select courses from various disciplines, such as corporate law, securities law, trade law, commercial law, and dispute resolution. Students desiring a more focused approach are free to concentrate their courses in one or more specialty areas. Students who wish to fulfill the course requirements for New York Bar eligibility can do so while pursuing the IBEL degree.  Many students also incorporate an externship into their program.
