Regent Law Adds Concentrations to its MA in Law Program

Starting in 2015, students will be able to focus on Human Rights and General Legal Studies

Virginia's Regent University School of Law has announced that it is adding two new concentrations—in Human Rights and General Legal Studies—to its MA in Law program.

The concentration in Human Rights will focus on a range of issues that will help students advocate for those who are vulnerable. Elective courses in this concentration include "Immigration Law & Procedure," " International Children's Rights," and "Human Rights, Civil Liberties, & National Security," among others.

The General Legal Studies concentration is a highly customizable option, which allows students to tailor the MA program to their own needs. A variety of elective offerings, covering topics in family law, negotiations, and Constitutional law, are available, among others.

The new concentrations will launch in 2015. Regent Law also offers several other concentrations as part of its MA in Law program, including Nonprofit Management and Human Resources Management, among others. The program can be pursued both online and in-class, although some concentrations are only available online.

Regent Law also offers LL.M. programs in Human Rights and American Legal Studies.

For more information, please see the Regent Law blog post announcing the new concentrations.
