The program

You’ll shape your own experiences in this Master of Laws from New College of the Humanities - drawing from industry-informed curriculum in three areas: Intellectual Property and Technology Law, International Business Law, and Bar Examination Preparation. Students who have obtained their first law degree outside the U.S. will gain substantive knowledge of U.S. law concepts to prepare for the California bar exam, and exams in other qualifying jurisdictions, including New York for students with appropriate training in certain common law countries through the Bar Examination Preparation Track.

Students will also have the opportunity to participate in an optional one week California legal immersion summer experience, where they will visit legal and governmental institutions in the San Francisco Bay Area, and learn real-world insights from legal leaders relating to the interplay between law, technology, and government. Through this experience, students will be able to apply the concepts they’re learning in their coursework in a real-world legal setting, giving them the confidence and credentials to take their careers to the next level.
