USD School of Law Launches Masters of Science in Legal Studies Program
SAN DIEGO (May 6, 2009) – The University of San Diego School of Law has launched a new Masters of Science (M.S.) in Legal Studies program. The M.S. in Legal Studies is designed for graduate students and professionals who would benefit from further study of the law, but who do not wish to become an attorney.
“This degree fills an important need in the community,” said University of San Diego School of Law Dean Kevin Cole. “People working in many fields can benefit from focused training on how the legal system impacts their own fields. This degree allows these candidates to craft a program specifically designed to their needs that can be completed in as little as one year.”
The traditional Juris Doctor (J.D.) program is a comprehensive curriculum that takes approximately three years to complete. The Legal Studies program allows students to enroll in the same courses as traditional law students while structuring their course-load to suit their individual needs.
Ideal candidates for the M.S. in Legal Studies include graduate students in other disciplines such as business, healthcare, technology, science and journalism. In addition, candidates with undergraduate degrees in other disciplines and significant professional experience will be considered and are invited to apply.
