GW Law Will Offer a Master's Program that Targets Non-Lawyers
Are you a non-lawyer who wants to study law without practicing it?
If yes, then this is your chance to shine.
The George Washington University Law School, or GW Law for short, has recently announced the launch of a new Master of Studies in their Law program, dedicated especially to dilettantes who are driven solely by their enthusiasm for the practice and don’t necessarily need a JD or a job as a lawyer.
If you fall into this category, you can apply for a new GW Law’s MSL program under the condition that you have at least three to five years of experience in the chosen field of study. A prior degree in law is not required, which means that this MSL welcomes all non-lawyers who are eager to learn a new skill.
The fields of study or concentrations available in this program are:
- Business and Finance
- Criminal Law & Procedure
- Environmental & Energy Studies
- First Amendment Speech and Expression
- Government Procurement
- Health Care
- Intellectual Property
With three to five years of experience in one of these nine dedicated fields, you can apply for a place alongside other JD and LLM students, and complete the program in one year. The invitation applies to both full-time and part-time students, as GW Law adopts the MSL program to all schedules.
As a great alternative to a JD, this MSL hopes to attract students committed to continual learning.
