Corporation Law

The Big Picture 

The specialized LLM in Corporation Law, designed primarily for foreign-educated lawyers, offers full-time, intensive academic training in the legal regulation of U.S. and global business activity.  Master’s students take most classes with our permanent faculty, including some of the nation’s leading theorists in law and economics, corporate law and bankruptcy law, as well as academics whose work is oriented more toward practice and the profession.  Some courses for the law degree may be completed in the departments of finance or international business at NYU’s Stern School of Business, and drawing from our location in America’s business and financial center, courses are instructed by industry experts who hold permanent positions in businesses and firms outside the Law School. 

The structure of the academic program ensures access to a rigorous and broadly-based curriculum including a required class in U.S. corporation law and an exceptionally rich array of courses in finance, bankruptcy, securities regulation as well as numerous specialized seminars. Students are afforded maximum flexibility to design their own course of study within the broad area of relevant courses developing an individualized degree program that integrates innovative approaches to the study and practice of business law.

Law, Business and Finance

The Pollack Center for Law and Business, a joint venture of the Law School and the Stern School of Business, is one of many intellectual hubs for those with corporate and business interests.  Dedicated to enhancing an interdisciplinary legal and business education for the academic community, as well as for experienced legal and business practitioners, the Pollack Center brings faculty from the Stern School of Business to the Law School to teach courses and give lectures throughout the year.  Master's students may select from a sampling of business school classes in both semesters for credit toward their degree. Students may also concurrently complete the Advanced Professional Certificate in Law and Business through the Pollack Center.

The Transactional Approach

Corporation Law students benefit from a number of transactional and law and business courses in our annual offerings. In these courses, a substantial component is dedicated to the study of real-life transactions, how they are structured and how they are negotiated. There is perhaps no better tool to learn how to be an effective business lawyer than in the deals and documents that shape the next generation of U.S. and global business activity.  During the 2013-14 academic year, the following transactional courses are being offered:
