The LL.M. program was highlighted in an article for LL.M. Guide. Professor Sean Griffith, director of the Fordham Corporate Law Center, shared his expert opinion on why this program is in demand.
Sean Griffith, chair in business law at Fordham Law School in New York, reports a similar trend. “With a lot of M&A activity, there is a lot of demand for lawyers,” he says.
“Every part of the deal needs to be supported by a good legal team. You need good lawyers in-house at the acquirer and at the target, as well as at the insurer and all the law firms working on the transaction.”
Although Fordham doesn’t offer an LL.M. in M&A per se, its LL.M. in Banking, Corporate and Finance Law addresses a number of topics relevant to deals lawyers.
