LLM in Corporate Governance & Practice
The Master of Laws (LLM) in Corporate Governance & Practice offers rigorous academic and professional training in corporate governance and transactional legal practice. This specialized program seeks to provide foreign business and transactional lawyers with a broad base of expertise in such areas as accounting, bankruptcy, corporations, finance, mergers and acquisitions, securities, tax, and venture capital that they can use when they return to law practice, most often in their home countries. Candidates admitted to the program will undertake an individually tailored sequence of courses, primarily from among the Law School's corporate and business-related courses.
The LLM in Corporate Governance & Practice is limited to students with a primary law degree earned outside the United States. Except under unusual circumstances, candidates must have at least two years of professional legal experience before commencing the LLM program.
LLM students are required to be in residence at Stanford during the full (nine month) academic year. They are required to take a minimum of 35 credit units and a maximum of 42 credit units.
