Pepperdine University School of Law is now accepting applications for the school's new Online Master of Legal Studies, with the first cohort of students expected to begin the program in August.
The online master program - which can be completed in a few as 16 months - enables students to undertake the study without having to relocate, minimising disruption to their work and family lives.
The program is designed for mid-career professionals who are non-lawyers, equipping them with the skills and expertise to deal with legal and regulatory challenges in various industries.
Students can opt to study for the concentration in dispute resolution as part of the program.
Two in-person residencies at the school's Malibu campus in California will allow students to forge deeper connections with fellow students and faculty.
The program's first application deadline is coming up on June 9.
