Master of Laws Programs in LLM Employment Law in New York in USA. Fordham Law’s LLM in Corporate Compliance — the first of its kind in the country—introduces students to a rapidly emerging field that is often global in scope. This unique program prepares candidates to respond effectively to new and complex regulatory demands. Students will explore the role of in-house counsel, the corporate compliance office, and the elements of compliance, including risk assessment, attorney-client privilege, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, global codes of conduct, crisis management, deferred prosecution and non-prosecution agreements, and corporate social responsibility. Students will learn the basic regulatory framework, especially in the banking and financial regulatory industries, and will be trained in the skills that are essential for any compliance professional. PROGRAM-SPECIFIC REQUIRED COURSES The 24-credit minimum must include Corporations* as well as 12 credits of Specialization Distribution Courses approved for the Corporate Compliance program. The 12-credit Specialization Distribution Course requirement must include the following core courses: Global Corporate Compliance Compliance Risk Assessment We also strongly recommend students to take either International Financial Crime or Anti-Money Laundering. Remaining credits needed to fulfill the 12-credit Specialization Distribution requirement must be chosen from among the selection of Specialization Distribution Courses approved for the Corporate Compliance program. ADDITIONAL REQUIRED COURSES For students who do not hold a JD degree from a U.S. law school, the following courses are also required: Introduction to the U.S. Legal System Legal Writing and Research for LLM Students Introduction to the U.S. Legal Profession At least 6 credits of Content Outline courses Students are required to take Introduction to the U.S. Legal System and Legal Writing and Research for LLM Students during their first semester of study in the LLM program. Note: If a course can fulfill both (i) a Specialization Distribution requirement and (ii) a Content Outline requirement, the course may count toward both requirements. A Note Regarding Course Selection for Part Time Students The LLM program strives to ensure that there is a wide range of courses available in the evening in each of our LLM areas of specialization, and to ensure that students will be able to meet their program requirements within their desired time frame for completion. However, it would be impossible to ensure that any specific course will be offered at a time that is convenient to all students. We encourage you to look at the schedules from past semesters, available on the registrar's website, to get a sense of what courses may be offered in the future (noting, of course, that the schedule varies from one semester to the next).
