    The Master’s degree requires 30 credits, the LL.M. 24 credits, and the Certificate program 9 credits. To earn a concentration at least 18 credits must be completed from courses within the concentration. The Master’s and LL.M. require a Thesis course and the Master’s requires Introduction to Law and Legal Methods. That leaves room for either completing additional courses within the concentration or taking some electives. The programs are built for flexibility.

    The Albany Law program helped me get this job (as a privacy professional). It has expanded my knowledge of privacy, and the company wanted someone with that expertise to kick-start their privacy practice.
