*Before Scholarship

Designed for those with or without prior legal education, our Advanced Certificate courses broaden students’ knowledge in areas not addressed in a typical industry focused program. Our curriculum seamlessly integrates industry knowledge with legal expertise. Focusing on situational problem-solving, risk avoidance and the most current legal challenges, students leave the program equipped to excel. This program is your opportunity to stand out within your industry as you gain the ability to navigate complex situations. 

Find Your Perfect Fit

Our 100% online curriculum focuses on practical, situation-based learning, but figuring out which degree path you should take can be challenging. Answer a few quick questions, and we will help match you to the program that will give you the tools to achieve your goals. 



“We had real life scenarios, such as writing compliance policies and mock presenting to a board of directors (our professors). Most of the discussions involved scenarios that occur in compliance departments; students had to act as chief compliance officers and handle those scenarios...The certificate [taught] that confidence I needed."
