The Business Law and Policy Specializations give UCLA School of Law students a head start by providing them with a broad perspective on relevant legal and business issues. The specializations are suitable for students interested in practicing transactional law as well as those students who desire to become business litigators. Students may choose from two specializations: Business Law (with recommended tracks for Bankruptcy and Corporate Law) and Taxation.
Students in the Business Law and Policy Specializations choose from among approximately 70 courses and seminars. Students begin with foundational courses, and then select from recommended specialized courses, and courses that provide further depth in a variety of areas. Students have the opportunity to take an intensive transactional skills course as the capstone of their business law education. These advanced courses help prepare students to enter into business law practice with a broad exposure to the relevant interconnected bodies of substantive law, and an understanding of how successful business lawyers practice their profession.
