Over the past decade, business, government, and nonprofit organizations have faced increasing demands to comply with a myriad of government regulations in a rapidly changing legal landscape. Today, human resources professionals are responsible for the design, administration, and enforcement of many policies that address these regulations while ensuring compliance and managing risk for the organization.

Do HR professionals have to be attorneys?

Mitchell Hamline School of Law’s online Human Resources Compliance Certificate will effectively teach you to identify and evaluate compliance requirements, while also providing the ability to work with stakeholders to effectively implement compliance programs within organizations. This program has been designed for attorneys, business professionals, and emerging leaders. 

Nikki Miller, a senior human resources compliance manager in the financial services industry completed the program. She said, “The Mitchell Hamline Human Resources Compliance Certificate was an effective and practical way to enhance my understanding of HR compliance. I immediately applied what I was learning to my role in HR Compliance, and it has deepened my understanding and ability to contribute. 

“The program provided the flexibility I needed in my job and family life. This was the most immediately applicable and timely training I’ve ever had. It should be considered a necessary foundation for those working in or considering the field of HR compliance.”
