Master's Degree Tracks

The Wake Forest University School of Law’s online MSL Master’s Degree focuses on the complex legal and regulatory environments facing professionals today. Each of our 3 dedicated professional tracks — Business Law & Compliance, Health Law & Policy, and Human Resources — are uniquely designed to address your industry-specific needs.

Students take only MSL classes, collaborating with their cohort and MSL peers, each providing relevant professional perspective. The MSL program does not incorporate any JD specific courses. The result is a strategic and enhanced lens coupled with an immediately applicable set of tools that can only be achieved through this level of coursework and professional collaboration.
