MSL and LLM in Organizational Ethics and Compliance

Develop your skills in one of the most important and influential fields of business today in as little as one year of full-time study or two years of part-time study. 

Offered in partnership with the School of Law, the Master of Studies in Law (M.S.L.) and the Master of Laws (LL.M.)  will provide you with a deep understanding of how compliance work fits within a broader vision of corporate responsibility and the common good. The M.S.L. degree is for those who hold an undergraduate degree and seek a graduate degree specifically tailored to a career in ethics and compliance. The LL.M. is for those who already hold a U.S. law degree but seek an advanced degree in ethics and compliance.
