2013LLMWebinarPromo235pxOn Wednesday, April 3rd, from 9:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. EDT, Widener Law will host an online information session to answer questions about the exciting range of LL.M. programs offered by the law school, from seated programs to a unique online LL.M. program in Delaware Corporate Law and Finance. The seated programs or "in residence" program offerings are in Corporate Law, Health Law, and the General LL.M. degree. For those who want to pursue the General LL.M., the students can select concentrations in Criminal Law, Environmental Law, Law & Government, or American Legal Studies.

“We’re expanding our LL.M. offerings to build on our long-standing Corporate and Health Law programs,” says Associate Legal Writing Professor Alison Donahue Kehner. By expanding our seated programs and launching the online LL.M. in fall 2013, we are responding to students' need for flexibility and choice in how they pursue their graduate law degrees.”

The Webinar will provide participants with a chance to interact with professors who are involved in our programs, and to ask questions in real time. Ruby R. Vale Professor of Corporate and Business Law Larry Hamermesh, Professor John Culhane, and Assistant Dean Anthony Doyle will participate in a panel discussion moderated by Professor and Assistant Dean for the Office of Student Affairs Ned Luce to discuss Widener’s exciting LL.M. offerings. Hamermesh is the Director of Widener Law’s Institute of Delaware Corporate and Business Law, and Culhane directs the Health Law Institute.

Kehner says that the General LL.M. program is designed to give students more control over the course of study they wish to pursue, while the new online LL.M. in Delaware Corporate Law and Finance takes advantage of the school’s location in America’s “corporate capital.” In addition to providing the opportunity to take classes “taught by full-time faculty and well-established corporate law practitioners in Delaware,” the online program will give students the ability to “pursue the degree in the most flexible way possible, whether you want to come to the United States or participate in classes from your own home.”

According to Professor Hamermesh, "this webinar is an opportunity for us to get out the word about Widener and Delaware corporate law. The world already knows about how important Delaware is in making corporate law that affects companies with national and multinational scope. What's less well known is that Widener Law's resources - its full time faculty with extensive practice experience, and its adjunct faculty including distinguished members of the Delaware bench and bar -- make it a uniquely valuable place to study Delaware corporate and business law."

Adds Professor Culhane, "Our Health Law Institute has been serving the legal community for more than twenty years, and we're always looking for ways to expand our reach. This webinar is the perfect vehicle for doing so."
