Online Master's in Legal Studies Degree Programs

Lawyers – also referred to as attorneys – advise their clients on legal matters and act as advocates for them during court proceedings. Law is widely considered one of the most challenging and lucrative professions that you can pursue, and it also requires a great deal of education. After earning a Juris Doctor (JD) degree and pass the state bar exam, some lawyers also go on to earn specialized master’s degrees. Among these are the Master of Laws (LLM), which is a research degree, and the Master of Science in Law – Health Law, which focuses on the legal aspects of medicine.
