Securities & Financial Regulation LL.M.
Located within blocks of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Law Center offers a unique advanced degree in Securities and Financial Regulation. Beginning with core courses dealing with activities regulated by the SEC, the curriculum also includes courses addressing the commodity futures markets, the mutual fund industry, banks and insurance companies, financial accounting and reporting, corporate finance, corporate governance, financial derivatives, project finance, securities litigation, mergers and acquisitions, and venture capital and technology transactions. Adjunct faculty drawn from the SEC and other regulatory agencies, as well as leading Washington law firms, teach most of the graduate level courses. Full-time faculty oversee the curriculum and teach basic courses in corporations, securities law and banking, as well as advanced seminars, primarily in the J.D. Division. Courses and seminars at the J.D. level are open to LL.M. students once J.D. students have been accommodated.
