Go Further With an MJ Degree

Today’s laws and regulations are becoming more complex, impacting how business is done, how individuals work and live, and how people see the landscape around them.

Meeting changing compliance as a professional is challenging, but by earning a Master of Jurisprudence, you can define a stronger career path.

Having a legal framework to better address your field’s challenge can make you a critical asset within your organization or prepare you for a career change. Through Tulane’s three Master of Jurisprudence programs, you will find courses are taught by experienced attorneys and legal experts and the legal knowledge and experience to master what’s ahead in your career.

The MJ in Labor and Employment Law was designed to accelerate careers and improve the day-to-day effectiveness of professionals with HR responsibilities. Fewer than 6 percent of human resource professionals have formal academic training in the law. With the expertise you'll gain through this program, your job effectiveness will increase—long before your graduation—and you'll quickly become a highly valued contributor on the job. You'll become more adequately self-sufficient, and will prove to be a huge asset to your organization as you save money, reduce risks and improve workplace culture.

Walk away with the ability to train employees about sexual harassment, to deal effectively with unions, to engage in collective bargaining, to mediate disputes or participate in the arbitrations of labor disputes, to create personnel manuals, to lead executive searches that are EEOC compliant, and much more.
