The Boston-based Suffolk University Law School has partnered with the Suffolk University Business School to offer a Master of Law degree in the life sciences field.
The The Master of Science in Law: Life Sciences—or 'MSLL'—will look at the intersection of the science, business, and law fields, and how they relate to the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries.
The MSLL program's curriculum includes courses such as "Applied Genetics," "Biotechnology Business and the Law," "Pharmaceutical Manufacturing, Policy, and Practice," and "Data Security," among others. Students are required to complete 30 credits of course work. Each course is three credits.
The program can be completed in as few as two semesters if pursued on a full-time basis.
Suffolk's new Master of Science in Law: Life Sciences degree is STEM designated, meaning that international students who pursue the program would be eligible for up to 36 months of post-study work visa time in the US.
