When we launched our online Juris Master Program several years ago, we could not have anticipated the huge growth it would see in its first years. This spring, 42 students earned their J.M. degrees, bringing the total number of program graduates to 222. Currently, 452 students are enrolled in the master’s program, and the number of new students enrolling has continued to increase each semester. In addition to expanding the program’s enrollment, we recently added a new concentration to the program—the Cybersecurity, Privacy, and Technology Risk Management Concentration launched this summer and we are currently accepting applications for the fall semester. Students will gain a strong foundation in U.S. and foreign laws and regulations governing cybersecurity, privacy, intellectual property, data science and artificial intelligence. They will also learn about pertinent contract law issues, including basic contract law, IP licensing law, government and defense contracting, and legal and risk management issues relevant to managing portfolios of contracts. With this new concentration, students now have five concentrations from which to choose when enrolling in our online master’s program:

  • Cybersecurity, Privacy, and Technology Risk Management
  • Employment Law and HR Risk Management
  • Financial Regulation and Compliance
  • Health Care Regulation
  • Legal Risk Management, Contracting, and Compliance

Additionally, our innovative and dedicated Juris Master team has been hosting frequent virtual information sessions for prospective students since COVID began, which has allowed interested students to learn more about our offerings and the admissions process, and to ask questions of team members. If you know anyone who would benefit from earning a master’s in law, they can learn more about our nationally ranked program and register to attend an information session on our website.
