Baylor University Law School launches America's first Executive LLM in Litigation Management. With the busy schedule of legal professionals in mind, the LLM program combines online and in-person learning experience. It will start its inaugural class Fall of 2018. Applications to the LLM degree are now accepted by the Law School.
Established in 1857 and located in Waco, Texas, Baylor Law School is situated in an impressive facility on the Brazos River banks and is by-choice one of America's smallest law schools. In cognizance of the fact that litigation has become a part of the life of American businesses, Baylor Law School created the Executive LLM in Litigation Management. The LLM program is designed particularly to strategically manage litigation thereby controlling the escalating costs associated with it.
To be eligible to apply, the candidate should have a minimum of three years legal practice. The program has a duration of 14 months where students will be spending about 10 hours weekly of interactive online learning and a two-week on-campus intense learning experience that will be conducted three times throughout the LLM program.
Admitted students will be taught by a group of leading attorneys, top legal experts and judges. Included in the curriculum are courses such as the fundamentals of 21st century litigation strategy and management, regulatory issues, data analytics and cyber security, proving and attacking damages, ADR issues, managing complex arbitration, managing e-discovery and practical strategies for successfully navigating through trial.
Interested LLM students are encouraged to submit their applications now for the Fall 2018 classes.
