What is the online experience like? Do I need to attend class?

The online experience is interactive and flexible. Most of the online coursework is considered asynchronous, where you can complete your learning activities (such as readings, discussion board postings, assignments, quizzes and exams) in your own time. Each class also offers a synchronous component that we call a “live session.”

How much time should I spend on coursework each week?

Expect approximately 6 hours of work per week. This may include lecture videos, readings, discussions and assessments.

Will I get any guidance on which courses I should take?

Yes. An academic advisor will be assigned to you upon your completion of your application, per your concentration. Your advisor will work with you to create an individualized curriculum tailored to your needs and interests.

What kind of support is available?

As an online student, you will have access to several types of support resources when you need help or guidance, beginning with new student orientation. Other services include a help desk for technical issues, a student services coordinator, financial aid advisers and more.

Can I study online and on-campus for a hybrid option?

Unfortunately, no. Online programs are completely separate from on-campus programs. You should have to complete the program in Online Mode only.

Can I take the Bar Exam with my Law degree?

Law Master’s degree and certificate programs do not qualify students to sit for the bar exam or become licensed attorneys. Students who intend to practice law should pursue a JD degree.

Will the MLS degree / PGDL allow me to practice law?
