@WashULaw Delivers Online Option for International Students
Next January, Washington University School of Law will begin offering its Master of Laws in U.S. Law for Foreign Lawyers (LL.M.) in a new and innovative online format. Called @WashULaw, the program is the first and only top-tier online LL.M. in U.S. law.
“We aim to produce extraordinary graduates who benefit from the highest caliber online education available – and to ensure that the quality equals or exceeds the quality of the best LL.M. programs in the world,” says Kent Syverud, dean of the Law School and Ethan A.H. Shepley Distinguished University Professor.
@WashULaw is being directed by Melissa Waters, professor of law, and Tomea Mersmann, associate dean for strategic initiatives and lecturer in law. An advisory council is being formed to engage the Washington University School of Law community and thought leaders in education in the development of @WashULaw.
Washington University School of Law has partnered with the education technology company 2tor, Inc. to deliver @WashULaw. 2tor partners with leading higher education institutions to deliver rigorous, selective degree programs online by providing the technology platform, instructional design, marketing and infrastructure support.
