Gain a unique, career-relevant perspective on your profession with a Master in Jurisprudence from Texas A&M University School of Law. The M.Jur. is designed for professionals who seek legal education and training and who want a thorough understanding of the legal policy and principles that impact their industry.
This degree will not qualify students to sit for any state bar examination, and it is not intended for anyone who wishes to practice law. M.Jur. students will ordinarily complete the program’s required 30 credits within one or two academic years.
All Texas A&M M.Jur. programs, both in residence and online, are fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. Additionally, these programs have obtained acquiescence from the American Bar Association (ABA).
Both the online and in-residence M.Jur. programs have cohorts starting in Spring 2017.
M.Jur. students are encouraged to attend and participate in all of our professional development, co-curricular, and outside speaker activities, as well as the many conferences and symposia sponsored by the School of Law.
In particular, M.Jur. students are invited to become involved in our innovative Professionalism and Leadership Program (PLP)
. The PLP helps students work through the development of their professional identities and the acquisition of skills that are vital to the practice of law. For example, the PLP sponsors workshops throughout the academic year focusing on core professionalism competencies, including effective communication, business and accounting acumen, mindfulness, leadership, and interpersonal skills.
