Building Interdisciplinary Skills and Knowledge: Cross-Registration Among LLM & Certificate Programs
Because the issues faced by attorneys practicing in the areas of tax, estate planning and family law often overlap, the University of Baltimore School of Law is offering a new opportunity for students in our LL.M. in Taxation, Certificate in Estate Planning and Post-J.D. Certificate in Family Law.
Students who wish to deepen their understanding of specific issues covered in another program may, with the approval of both program directors, enroll as a guest student in another of these programs-- without first applying and being accepted to the second program. Interested students should contact their program director, who will coordinate cross-registration.
