George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School is excited to announce the launch of its Juris Master (JM) degree program!
The JM degree is designed for professionals who interact with lawyers and legal issues regularly in the course of their careers. This type of program is in high demand and now offered by almost half of all tier one law schools.
“We are proud to offer the Juris Master degree program at Scalia Law School,” said Dean Henry N. Butler. “This is an opportunity for professionals to learn the law, so they will be better equipped to provide leadership in their respective fields.”
Scalia Law’s two-year part-time program will be offered at the Arlington campus, with classes starting in January.
As listed on the JM degree website, in addition to general legal research, writing and introductory law courses, JM students can select law school courses from six concentration areas:
- Criminal Justice
- Employment & Labor Relations
- Financial & Commercial Services
- Government Contracts & Regulations
- Intellectual Property & Technology
- National Security, Cybersecurity & Information Privacy
JM students can maintain employment schedules, while benefiting from the opportunities afforded by a tier-one law school.
There is a tuition discount for students who enroll in the JM degree program’s first year class, which will start January 14.
There is a growing base of legal services and legal knowledge required by employers and the JM degree is designed to educate students with the legal knowledge necessary for them to succeed in their chosen professions.
Applications are being accepted now. For more information about the JM degree program, please visit our website or contact Jessica L. Sartorius, Director of Juris Master (JM) degree program, at [email protected] or 703-993-8418.
