The George Washington University Law School (GW Law) has announced the launch of a new Master of Studies in Law program.
The new MSL program is aimed at non-lawyers who want to study law but don't necessarily want to get a JD or practice law.
MSL students will study alongside JD and LL.M. students, and have the opportunity to pursue one of nine areas of concentration, including Business and Finance, Intellectual Property, Environmental & Energy Studies, and Cybersecurity, among others. See the full list of concentrations below.
The program is flexible and can accommodate both full- and part-time students. Full-time students can complete the MSL in one year.
To apply for GW Law's new Master of Studies in Law program, potential candidates do not need a first degree in law, but should have a minimum of three to five years of experience related to their area of concentration.
The new MSL is set to launch this fall. Applications for the fall and spring intakes are accepted on a rolling basis.
For more information, please see GW Law's news release announcing the launch of the new MSL degree.
