Please see the following message from the Northwestern University Master of Science in Law Program:

***********************************

Good morning!

My name is Nicole Schneider, and I’m reaching out on behalf of the Northwestern Pritzker School of Law Master of Science in Law for STEM professionals.

The MSL is a unique program that provides individuals with STEM backgrounds with specialized training in the areas of intellectual property and patent design, business law and entrepreneurship, regulatory analysis and strategy, and skills development. Students can complete the full-time program in nine months, or the part time program (via either the residential or online format) in two to four years.

Career outcomes are as varied as the science backgrounds of our incoming students, and boast a 96% employment rate within 6 months of graduation. For more information on the MSL Program’s revolutionary curriculum please review our program brochure.

Additionally, I’ve included our student webinar information below. Typically, we host the webinars on the third Wednesday each month from 5:30 – 6:30 pm and the link updates each month via our website.

 

Northwestern’s Master of Science in Law for STEM Professionals

Northwestern's Law School has created a novel master's degree, the Master of Science in Law (MSL). Designed exclusively for students with STEM backgrounds, the Master of Science in Law degree provides practical, focused legal training in business law & entrepreneurship, intellectual property, and regulatory strategy. MSL students learn to communicate across disciplines, navigate the legal and regulatory structures that exist in STEM settings; bring ideas to market; and develop, protect, and manage IP. The MSL also focuses on skills development in the areas of writing, oral communication, presentations, negotiations, and financial skills.

 

I will be traveling to campus the week of March 9th and I would love to meet with you and share more information on the program. I will also be coordinating student info sessions so please let me know if you’d like more information and I can share those details! Please let me know if you are available to connect during my visit.

Best,

Nicole
