Tulane launches online masters in labour and employment law
Tulane University Law School in New Orleans is launching a new masters program – the Masters of Jurisprudence in Labour and Employment law – with classes scheduled to start in May 2016.
This new degree program is designed to help human resources professionals in their careers. It is being led by Professor Joel Friedman, who explains, “This program will equip non-lawyers with the tools to understand and act upon current and future employment law.” It is taught entirely online and can be completed in less than two years, with tuition fees costing $32,000.
The Dean of Tulane Law, David Meyer, says, “We are excited about the potential of this new degree program to meet an important and growing need for legal understanding in the human resources field. Organisation leaders and human resource professionals now require basic understanding in the legal architecture that frames every decision to hire, train, promote, or discipline an employee. This program will provide that understanding in a format that enables professionals at all career stages to benefit.”
The program is pending approval from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, which is expected by January 2016.
