This fall, the University of Georgia School of Law will begin offering a new graduate level degree for professionals and recent graduates seeking to increase their knowledge of law relevant to their career or academic discipline. The Master in the Study of Law is a non-thesis, 30-credit-hour degree for non-lawyers that can be completed in one year on a full-time basis or over three years on a part-time basis. It will provide students with a solid understanding of the U.S. legal system and the opportunity to delve more specifically into law as it relates to a particular field such as employment law, health care law and environmental law, among others.
