According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, lawyers can specialize in a number of areas, such as bankruptcy, probate, international, elder or environmental law. Individuals who wish to launch careers in this field that place a specific emphasis in a particular area may benefit from earning a dual degree.

In an effort to help law students gain training in a variety of subjects, Liberty University (LU) recently began offering a dual degree program, which allows them to obtain master's degrees in fields such as education, business and divinity. According to a press release, the program is designed to prepare students for careers in all levels of government.

"This is the first program in the nation, to our knowledge, that will be provided using both the resources and expertise of the School of Law and the School of Government," said Mat Staver, School of Law dean. "This is truly groundbreaking. We'll bring in different people from around the country who are leaders and well-known to teach the courses."

The school also announced the launch of an online master's degree in public policy.
