About the Program

Beautiful shot of the city of Charlotte, NC.

Today’s legal and regulatory climate is increasingly complex and ever-changing. As corporations seek to avoid liability, and create value, they are responding to the heightened expectations of self-governance by expanding their in-house compliance staffs. However, the supply of trained and certified compliance professionals can’t keep up with this demand.

Charlotte School of Law’s new Corporate Compliance Certificate Program is responding to this need by being one of the few law schools in the country offering a Corporate Compliance Certificate entirely online.

Designed and taught by compliance experts in Charlotte’s business and compliance community, this 18-week, online platform enables students to take courses efficiently — without leaving their jobs.

Charlotte School of Law’s program is grounded in ethics, compliance and corporate responsibility.  Students with or without a legal background can enter into a career in compliance and ethics.

For those law graduates particularly individuals who hope to work in financial and securities sectors a solid foundation and certification in compliance will aid in career advancement.

The Program has the distinction of being accredited by the Compliance Certification Board (CCB) ®, and successful completion of the Program qualifies graduates to sit for any of the CCB’s basic compliance certification exams*, including the Certified Compliance and Ethics Professional (CCEP)® exam.

*Graduates completing this approved program have two years from their noted completion date to sit for one of CCB’s basic compliance certification exams via the “Student” option, and one-year from their noted completion date to use the continuing education from this program to fulfill the CEU requirement.
