Corporate & Regulatory Compliance Certificate

UConn School of Law, in partnership with the School of Business, offers a certificate in Corporate and Regulatory Compliance for professionals interested in careers in compliance, ethics, internal monitoring, regulatory affairs and related areas. The program is open to JD candidates at the School of Law, those who hold a JD from another institution and non-legal professionals who hold at least a bachelor’s degree. Successful graduates will gain a portfolio of skills at the intersection of law and management to lead effective compliance programs and to build organizational cultures that encourage ethical conduct and a commitment to compliance. Admissions for current JD candidates at the School of Law is managed by the law school registrar, and more information about that process is available in the JD certificates section. For all other applicants, admissions is centralized at the School of Business.
