The M.Jur. program provides non-lawyers with a solid understanding of the legal issues relevant to your career, and will prepare you to interact most effectively with lawyers and the legal system.

Students in this 30 credit hour, ​1-2 year program will ​create a personalized course of study, enrolling in at least three courses in one of the focus areas below and choosing the balance of their course work from a wide range of substantive and skills classes.

M.Jur. students will take Introduction to the U.S. Legal System in their first term, as well as a drafting or writing course related to their area of interest. In addition, General M.Jur. students will also complete either a thesis or a capstone project.

To help plan and direct their degree plans, all M.Jur. students will be assigned and will regularly meet with an advisor from the School of Law’s full-time faculty.
