Master of Arts in Law

With the pervasive growth of law and regulation, the study of law and its various applications has become increasingly important. Yet the commitment to earning a Juris Doctor (J.D.) and passing the bar in order to practice law often exceeds the skills necessary in a particular vocation.

The 30-credit hour Master of Arts in Law is ideal for working professionals interested in legal education and professional advancement, but who do not desire to practice as an attorney. The program can be completed part-time or full-time, on campus or online, in one to three years. This M.A. degree does not necessarily qualify a student for entry into a J.D. program.  Pursuant to ABA Standards, no course credit from this M.A. program may later be transferred into a J.D. program.

Core courses ground students in foundational legal contexts as they learn the practical legal skills to excel in their field. Concentrations include:

Business Management*
Human Resources*
Non-Profit Management*
Business & Commercial Law†
Criminal Justice†
National Security†

Whether you are in business, government, human resources, policy administration, or another field, the Master of Arts in law will prepare you to effectively interact with legal professionals and apply the law to your professional setting.

The American Bar Association (ABA) fully approves the School of Law. Regent University is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award associates, baccalaureate, masters, and doctorate degrees.
