Corporate Law

A focus in corporate law can provide graduates with an expanded range of career options – corporate in-house counsel positions, jobs within financial institutions or federal regulatory agencies, as well as traditional law firm careers. It’s critical for practitioners in corporate law to understand the complexities of corporate structure, business finance, and the regulatory environment. Students can develop special expertise in transactional practice by selecting courses covering a range of business, commercial, and financial law topics.

Many students interested in corporate law also pursue a joint JD-MBA degree program with MSU’s nationally-recognized Broad School of Business.
