New York Law School Creates Master’s Degree in Financial Services Law

May 21, 2009

The New York Law School announced a new degree program, LL.M., Master of Laws, degree in financial services law beginning in the fall 2009 semester.

“The new LL.M. will teach students the inner workings of the complex global financial services industry, with students learning from a top-notch faculty, including Ron Filler, Director of the program, who has more than 30 years of experience in the field,” said Dean and President Richard A. Matasar. “In addition, students will be taught in our new state-of-the-art academic building, close to major players in the industry–Wall Street, the New York Stock Exchange, and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York–providing students with opportunities to gain hands-on experience.”

The 24-credit degree program is designed to be completed in one year for students who attend full-time. The program will offer four concentrations: banking, asset management, capital market and international regulation. Plus, more than 50 courses will be offered.

“The financial services industry is undergoing major legal, regulatory, and business changes globally. The advanced training offered by this LL.M. program will prove valuable to lawyers looking to focus on a broader practice in the area of financial services law or just hone their skills,” said Professor Ronald H. Filler.

New York Law School was founded in 1891 and is independent. It’s located in lower Manhattan. The law concentrations it offers are constitutional law, civil and human rights, labor and employment law, media and information law, urban legal studies, international and comparative law, and a number of interdisciplinary fields.
