Emory launches new law degree program

Emory University's law school is launching a new Juris Master degree program for professionals, graduate students and select undergraduates to aid their understanding of the law.

"It is important to think of law schools as not simply training lawyers, but as providing a broad legal education to both lawyers and non-lawyers," interim law school dean Robert Schapiro said. Applications are due by April 15 for a fall semester start and by Oct. 15 for a spring semester start. Classes are anticipated to begin in fall 2012 or spring 2013, the school said.
