Certificate Programs

LL.M. students who wish to further specialize may pursue a Certificate along with their LL.M. degree. Georgetown Law offers certificates in Employee Benefits, Estate Planning, International Arbitration and Dispute Resolution, International Human Rights Law, International Taxation, Refugees & Humanitarian Emergencies, State and Local Taxation and WTO Studies. With the exception of the Employee Benefits and Estate Planning certificates (which can be completed as stand-alone certificate programs), the certificates must be done in conjunction with one of the LL.M. degree programs. Students may earn only one Certificate during their LL.M. studies. For a detailed description of each certificate program, please visit the Office of Graduate Programs website or click on the link of your certificate of interest below.
