About the LLM
A New Kind of LLM Makes Earning the Credential Practical.
The LLM, or Master of Laws, is an internationally recognized postgraduate law degree. Lawyers at various career stages may seek LLM’s to gain expertise in a specialized field of law for a variety of reasons: retooling skills, or developing new ones; pursuing a competitive market advantage; expanding the reach and quality of their legal services; and being able to market themselves as specialists.
The Small Business Practice LLM is designed to satisfy each of these. Graduates may be more marketable for the increasingly competitive positions available in smaller and mid-size firms, where client bases are composed primarily of small business, and may gain the a competitive advantage by becoming specialists in the legal issues unique to small business. The program also provides lawyers an opportunity to meet and work with others with a common goal.
The ABA does not accredit any program other than the first degree in law (JD). Concord Law School is registered as a Distance Law School with the State Bar of California, which has approved the Small Business Practice LLM.
