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.
