MSL Compliance Specialization

The Compliance specialization allows MSL students to focus on the broad and growing field of compliance work, and to understand how compliance issues cut across all areas of law. Students develop skills in analyzing compliance risks, designing and managing internal compliance functions, and counseling organizational clients. Privacy is just one area where most industries are lacking knowledge of how to comply with state, national, and international rules. Some of UC Law SF’s many course offerings include privacy, corporate governance, and business and human rights.
