St. Mary’s School of Law is the only law school in Texas that is accredited by the Compliance Certification Board (CCB)®. J.D., M.Jur. and LL.M. students who complete the requirements below are eligible to sit for any of the CCB’s certification exams for up to a year after graduation, without any additional continuing education or professional work experience requirements.
CCB Eligibility Requirements
Certification by the CCB enhances your credentials and many compliance positions require certification through the CCB as a prerequisite to applying. Furthermore, CCB credentials demonstrate to potential employers and colleagues a commitment to and level of proficiency in the compliance and ethics field.
Eligibility for the CCB certification exams normally requires Continuing Education Units and work experience in the field of compliance. However, students who have successfully completed a CCB accredited masters or certificate program from a participating university are considered to have fulfilled these two requirements and can sit for CCB certification exams by earning a B or higher in each required course. Graduates have up to 12 months to take the CCB certification exams as per CCB External Accreditation guidelines.
