Program Overview

The Certificate in International Business Law enables lawyers to access the innovative online and blended-learning courses of the Executive LLM in International Business Law, without having to leave their jobs and commit to a degree program. Students are required to complete one three credit course, and can select from the wide array of elective courses when choosing their remaining courses. A minimum of 12 credits is required for the Certificate.

While the Executive LLM requires applicants to have a minimum of three years of work experience, the Certificate in International Business Law is open to new lawyers. All other Executive LLM application requirements remain in place for Certificate applicants. A strong performance in the Certificate program will be considered for any applicants who wish to be considered for the Executive LLM degree.
