Why study Seattle University?
  • Seattle has emerged as a leading global hub for the technology industry. The city hosts a remarkable base of knowledge, talent, and opportunity that inspires our LLM in Technology, Innovation, & Entrepreneurship. The program addresses the substantial need for a new cadre of legal service professionals who are well-trained in the underlying regulatory schemes and well-versed in the technological and strategic features that define the newest methods of doing business.

    Part of the Technology, Innovation Law, and Ethics program, this specialized degree track is intended for foreign-trained and US-trained attorneys who wish to focus their studies in the areas of privacy, cybersecurity, digital commerce, and financial technology. The LLM degree is 24 credits, and students interested in completing the LLM and seeking bar eligibility can do both by completing additional credits towards bar eligible courses (the specific number depends upon the state in which the student wants to sit for the bar). The program may be attended full or part-time. Upon completion, students may be eligible to sit for the bar exam in Washington, California, and several other states.


    The program curriculum places particular emphasis upon matters of privacy, cybersecurity, digital commerce, and financial technology. Students examine the interplay between technological innovation, complex legal doctrines and regulatory approaches, business and market models (both cutting-edge and traditional), and the various actors whose interests, perspectives, and goals affect the technology law landscape.

    LLM students can choose from among a wide array of technology-related courses. Depending on the semester and availability, these may include:

    • Copyright Law
    • Cybersecurity and Data Breach: Legal and Practical Prevention and Response
    • Cybercrime: Law and Policy
    • Foundations of Privacy Law
    • Intellectual Property
    • Introduction to Financial Technology
    • Patent Law
    • The Business of Intellectual Property

    In addition to tech-related courses, students will have the opportunity to take at least 8 credits worth of electives. Students can choose to use those 8 electives toward bar eligibility courses, or they can opt to take more credits in technology.
