Business Law

Our core Business Law Program prepares you with coursework in finance and economics, combined with studies in corporate law, commercial law, tax law, antitrust law and IP law.

With a goal of integrating breadth and depth, the curriculum includes foundational studies on organizations, bankruptcy, IP, securities regulation and corporate law, as well as focused studies in either litigation or transactional practice. Either focus can be combined with specialty sequences that include topics as distinctive as real estate; environmental law and policy; or indigenous peoples law and public policy.

JD and MLS students acquire global business skills in courses on international trade, commercial, and investment law. JD students may earn a Business Litigation certificate (PDF) or a Transactional Business Law certificate (PDF) on completion of certificate requirements. The LLM and SJD programs in International Trade and Business Law offer more advanced training in highly-regarded programs, with alumni around the world.  

A growing network of international partnerships with other law schools and educational institutions affords you additional study and degree opportunities.
