The LLM in Insurance Law program at UConn School of Law is the top destination for lawyers and students from the United States and around the world who seek serious graduate training in insurance and financial services law. Thanks to our location in historic Hartford, Connecticut—the famed "insurance capital" and headquarters to some of the largest global insurance companies—our students study with the most sophisticated insurance law experts in the country. New York City and Boston are just two hours away and Fairfield County, Connecticut, the hedge fund capital of the United States, is even closer.

Insurance Law Center
UConn School of Law is home to the Insurance Law Center, a globally recognized academic center that focuses on insurance law and risk regulation. Founded in 1998 after a generous endowment from the insurance community, the Insurance Law Center stands out for its interdisciplinary research on the role of insurance in society.
The center’s full-time faculty brings a wide array of disciplines, including law, economics, finance, history, sociology, linguistics and philosophy, to the study of financial services law. Experienced adjunct faculty, LLM students, financial regulators, members of the insurance bar and fellow scholars from other universities explore the issues of the day in scholarly workshops and conferences. The center also hosts visiting scholars from around the world, hosts an insurance law collection unmatched by any other U.S. university, and publishes the Connecticut Insurance Law Journal.
The courses approved for the Insurance Law LLM are listed in our course catalog. Principles of Insurance is a required course and should be taken in the first semester. Students may petition for the inclusion of other courses, subject to the approval of the director.
