Program can be completed in less than two years

Tulane University Law School has announced the launch of a new online Master of Jurisprudence in Labor and Employment Law.

The new program will help non-lawyers understand the multifaceted topics surrounding hiring, firing, and other employment issues.

“Organization leaders and human resource professionals now require basic understanding in the legal architecture that frames every decision to hire, train, promote, or discipline an employee," says David Meyer, the dean of Tulane Law School.

"This program will provide that understanding in a format that enables professionals at all career stages to benefit.”

The program will take place entirely online. The curriculum will be delivered through a variety of distance-learning channels, including recorded lectures and live virtual sessions.

The new program is 25 credit-hours and can be completed in under two years.

The ABA has already given the new degree formal acquiescence. Tulane is still waiting on approval from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, which is expected by January 2016.

Classes are scheduled to start in May.
