After completing cohort introductory courses, non-attorney MJ candidates take all other courses with attorney Real Estate Law candidates at The John Marshall Law School. 


MJ Real Estate Law program at The John Marshall Law School builds on students' knowledge of the real estate industry and gives them the ability to understand the context in which real estate transactions are done and to assess the risks in those transactions.

Learning outcomes

MJ curriculum, developed with input from our Real Estate Law Advisory Board and the faculty, takes a transactional approach to legal education. Courses are taught by full-time professors, who are recognized experts in areas of commercial real estate law, and practicing adjunct faculty who offer degree candidates the unique opportunity to learn about real estate law in the context of the real estate industry and to learn to understand the business objectives and concerns of real estate clients. Degree candidates will graduate equipped with the skills needed to assess and evaluate risks and to be able to ask the right questions to quickly cut to the heart of their clients concerns.

Classes are held during late afternoons, evenings, and on Saturdays to accommodate those who work while earning their MJ. Part-time MJ candidates often complete the degree in 2 years, but have 5 years in which to complete the program requirements.
