New, one-year J.M. program aimed at non-lawyers; starts fall 2012
According to the law school, the one-year program was to designed for professionals and students, "to aid their understanding of how law intersects with various disciplines."
An understanding of legal principles is increasingly important in a growing number of fields," said Emory Law's interim dean Robert Schapiro. "Professionals in business, technology, journalism, engineering, politics and healthcare are not traditionally served by the legal education system, but would often benefit from a grounding in the law that applies to their areas.
The new, 24-unit program will be available on a full-time and part-time basis. Application deadlines for fall 2012 admission is April 15.
