“Business is becoming highly complex,” said Raymond Tsao, President and CEO of Covendis and JM student. “The JM program and the Emory Law faculty provide a solid understanding of the law that has a lot of practical application, whether negotiating deals or making important decisions for the business or organization.”
The program begins by equipping students with a strong understanding of the American legal system. Business professionals will acquire the ability to analyze, research, and communicate legal issues, while gaining a keen eye for the interpreting of contracts. Core courses cover alternate dispute resolution, administrative law, and a review of law and the legal profession.
Advanced coursework includes the study of the formation, financing, and management of business corporations; banking, securities, and financial regulation; risk management and internal regulation of business activity; fundamentals of deal-making; data management and protection; cybersecurity; and privacy regulations for public and private organizations.
The Juris Master program is a 30-credit-hour master’s degree that provides professionals with the legal knowledge and skills to navigate increasingly complex regulatory environments and contribute in more significant ways to their organizations. The new online format, which offers concentrations in health law and business law, can be completed in 18 months, and includes three 3-day sessions on-campus in a classroom setting. An on-campus program of study, which offers a wide range of concentrations, is also offered; it can be completed full-time in nine months or part-time in as long as four years. Scholarships and financial aid are available.
