Program Design

The Executive LL.M. is an accelerated program that has both online and in-residence components. Students must complete the 24 credit-curriculum, which is comprised of 5 required courses and 3 electives.

Program schedule

  • Two required courses are taken online during the Spring Semester prior to the residency period. A final required course is taken online during the Fall Semester.
  • Four courses (1 required and 3 electives) as well as the required colloquium are taken during the 12-week on-campus residency program over the summer.
    • The Summer Residency consists of four three-week modules. In each of the modules, the first 2 weeks will be comprised of course instruction, with the third week reserved for study and assessment.

The online classes are hybrid courses, meaning the instruction and coursework will be comprised of both live online components and self-directed study.  During each course, students will be engaged with recorded lectures, live online lectures, discussion boards, readings, and other assignments.
