Fordham Law School has launched the Professional Track LL.M. program, a flexible executive master’s program for busy, foreign-trained lawyers and law graduates. The Professional Track LL.M. program was designed for working global practitioners whose professional demands do not allow them to complete a traditional nine-month LL.M. residency.
The program provides students with the flexibility to begin their first 4.5 month semester in either August or January, take up to 15 months off, and then return to complete a second 4.5 month semester. Students who complete the program within two years can become eligible to sit for the New York State bar exam.
Students in the Professional Track LL.M. program can specialize in one of eight areas:
- Banking, Corporate and Finance Law
- Corporate Compliance
- Fashion Law
- Intellectual Property and Information Technology
- International Business and Trade Law
- International Dispute Resolution
- International Law and Justice
- U.S. Law
Professional Track LL.M. students will also have the opportunity to take advantage of exclusive networking opportunities with their Professional Track peers as well as members of the extensive global Fordham Law alumni network. Professional Track students will have a dedicated academic advisor to help them register for classes, monitor their academic progress, and facilitate their return to the program following a break in their studies.
