The new JM will be offered on a part-time basis on the school's campus in Arlington. Students must complete 30 credit hours; a standard course load is between six and nine credit hours per semester.

The JM will offer the following concentrations:

  • Criminal Justice
  • Employment & Labor Relations
  • Financial & Commercial Services
  • Government Contracts & Regulations
  • Intellectual Property & Technology
  • National Security, Cybersecurity & Information Privacy

Enrollment in the program will be limited to 25 students. Candidates whose native language is not English and who have not completed university-level study in English may need to submit current IELTS or TOEFL scores.

To apply for the inaugural intake of George Mason's JM program (January 2019), applications must be received no later than December 1. The program will offer both spring and fall intakes.
