Professionals in information technology and human resources, and employee benefits managers can easily update their skills and enhance their marketability through The John Marshall Law School’s convenient online master’s degree law course program – eCourses.jmls.
The innovative interactive distance education program offers qualified individuals an opportunity to learn the legal side of information technology and privacy issues, or employee benefits in a flexible and dynamic online learning environment – anytime, anywhere.
Busy work schedules, family time and professional obligations will no longer be hindrances to earning an MS degree. eCourses.jmls online is on-demand and allows students to study early in the morning, over lunch breaks or in the evening through a high-speed Internet connection wherever they are. Law librarians are available to assist students, and internationally and nationally recognized law professors participate through forum discussions, chat rooms or e-mail.
John Marshall offered its first eCourse in fall 2008 with an online graduate level course, Copyright Law and Practice, from the law school’s Center for Intellectual Property Law. Since that time, the American Bar Association-accredited law school has developed one of the most dynamic and extensive lists of online law courses in the country.
Professor Robert Nye, director of the law school’s Distance Education Program, said the law school is continuing its expansion of eCourse options because “we see online learning as another way The John Marshall Law School is making graduate law degrees accessible to today’s professionals.”
Registration for the spring semester continues through Dec. 1, 2010. Classes begin the week of Jan. 17, 2011. Get the details at eCourses.jmls.edu.
