What will I learn?

In today’s digital era, new legal challenges arise every day at the intersection of e-commerce, business, the legal and regulatory landscape, and beyond. A commerce and technology LL.M., supported by UNH Franklin Pierce School of Law's strong intellectual property (IP) foundation, lets you acquire an understanding of the legal issues that emerge when information technology, business and law meet. Expert faculty tackle current events in rapidly developing areas such as new payment systems and consumers’ private information, and the program offers flexibility to match your career objectives with three elective component areas: Intellectual Property, Transactions/Information Age Commercial Law, and International Perspective and Regulation/Tax. This LL.M. program provides unique knowledge that is invaluable in today’s evolving digital and data-driven economy.
