Legal Concentration in Government & Public Policy

Today’s government and public policy professionals require a deep understanding of legislative and regulatory processes, political theory and strategy, legal analysis and writing, and statutory interpretation. The McGeorge Master of Science in Law (M.S.L.) degree program is designed for professionals who seek the benefits of this advanced legal training but who do not require the J.D. degree to achieve their career goals.

Many of California’s most influential leaders began their careers at McGeorge and in our Capital Center for Law and Policy. Our flexible M.S.L. program builds on this legacy and can provide our students with an insider’s understanding of legislative decision making to help achieve professional objectives and build a professional network.

"The legal reasoning skills I have learned have given me confidence and have benefited my clients. I have taken on more responsibilities because my supervisor has recognized the additional skills in legal analysis that I have acquired in the M.S.L. program."John Wenger, Legislative Advocate Sloat Higgins Jensen and Associates
