“We are delighted to offer attorneys this opportunity to transform their law practices, help their clients solve problems, and build value in an entrepreneurial legal environment,” said NSU Law Dean, Jon M. Garon. “Our LL.M. students understand the importance of an innovative approach to the business of law, which is our hallmark.”

The NSU Law LL.M. program is a one-year full-time or two-year part-time program of study offering online, on campus, or hybrid options. The program is designed with flexibility in mind, providing focused schedules that concentrate on highly valuable practice areas. NSU Law faculty and subject matter authorities with a genuine commitment to student success will teach all LL.M. classes.

LL.M. students may select their own course of study or choose one of NSU’s areas of focus, which include Business and Entrepreneurial Counseling, Health Law, Intellectual Property, Cybersecurity, and Technology Law, International Law, and Litigation and Dispute Resolution. All focus areas incorporate leadership, strategic planning, fiscal literacy, and technology as core competencies for practicing attorneys.

Associate Dean of Graduate and Online Programs, Susan H. Stephan, points out that “with the addition of the LL.M. to our J.D. and our four M.S. in Law programs, we now offer practical, graduate-level studies to all professionals. The LL.M. is a key progression of legal education for lawyers, who must navigate a rapidly changing practice.”

Through the LL.M. degree program, NSU Law strives to bring tangible value to the legal community, with benefits apparent for law firms and individual students.
