In response to the demand from well-qualified applicants, Baylor Law is pleased to announce it will add a Spring cohort to its Executive LL.M. in Litigation Management. With a full Fall cohort now underway, the addition of an annual Spring cohort will allow more lawyers to join this elite network of candidates. The addition of the Spring cohort not only allows LL.M. candidates to start the program at a convenient time, it also adds flexibility regarding course load. By offering two cohorts each year, Baylor Law will now offer each course each trimester. All candidates now have the option to set their own pace of progress towards an LL.M. in Litigation Management degree that fits their life and work balance.
Designed for practicing attorneys who want to lead the field, the Executive LL.M. in Litigation Management is the only one in the country that takes a deep dive into cutting-edge legal technology, business principles, and sophisticated case management techniques to produce an innovative leader in litigation management. Whether the lawyer practices in-house, represents plaintiffs or represents defendants, attorneys in the program immediately start customizing the litigation management framework to fit the unique needs of their own firm or company and its litigation dockets. The degree program is specifically designed to accommodate the demanding schedules of busy attorneys. It allows candidates to use their own cases and objectives for many of their assignments. The program was created by trial lawyers for trial lawyers, drawing from the nation’s leading experts in various aspects of litigation management and legal tech.
“We’re addressing a key issue both for clients and for attorneys: how to manage complex and expensive litigation in a way that is both cost effective and goal oriented,” stated program coordinator Kyle Dreyer, who added, “graduates of the program leave with an agile sense of both the business and the strategy of litigation. Program demand was telling us that we needed to be more agile as well in how we offered the program.”
The program’s benefits have been immediately apparent for both employers and students, so the launch of a second cohort each year of the Executive LL.M. in Litigation Management is eagerly awaited. Baylor Law is now accepting applications for the newly added spring start, slated to get underway in January, 2021.
