Master of Science in Legal Studies: Law and Public Policy Concentration

Our online program in legal studies: law and public policy brings the core principles of Western jurisprudence to the forefront and instructs our graduates on substantive and procedural questions about law and its application in diverse settings. Even more compellingly, the program advocates and inculcates the ambitions of true legal reasoning and its practice-to prepare leaders for free and democratic societies and to ensure justice whenever and wherever possible.
