Juris Master Program
Professionals are coping with growing regulation, intensifying risk and liability concerns, and increasingly complex decision environments. Building your expertise in law with a juris master degree will give you better insight into issues including:
- What laws and regulations apply to my profession?
- What trends in law and regulation should I incorporate into decision-making?
- How does regulatory reform impact my profession, and how can I influence regulatory change?
- How can I assess risk in a changing environment?
- How can I communicate better with my organization’s attorneys?
Whether you are a professional interested in gaining a better grounding in law and regulation to advance your career, or a graduate student whose primary degree would be enhanced by an integrated study of law, Emory Law’s juris master program offers the insight and flexibility to help you achieve your goals.
