The Juris Master’s in International Legal Studies Equips Professionals to be the Best Global Law Experts

Liberty University’s 100% online Juris Master’s in International Legal Studies degree will enrich your understanding of international law and fundamental legal principles to increase your ability to address the global implications of policy and legal issues in many industries. For non-lawyer professionals who do not intend to practice law but want to study advanced constitutional principles and international policy, the online JM in International Studies provides the best possible path to become an international law and policy expert.

Can I Practice Domestic or International Law with a Juris Master’s Degree?

A Juris Master degree is designed to complement professional experience and an academic background in another field but does not meet requirements to sit for the BAR exam or practice law. The American Bar Association does not accredit any non-Juris Doctor degrees. Practicing international law requirements varies by country, but generally, you should pursue a Juris Doctor program.  If you are thinking of becoming an attorney, we encourage you to apply to our residential JD program
