Advantages of an LLM or MS Degree
In today’s competitive job market the difference between who gets hired or promoted can be a matter of degrees. If you are a practicing attorney or working professional, a master’s degree in law from The John Marshall Law School can give you a distinct advantage to get ahead and stay ahead. Having a specialty degree in law makes you much more desirable in the challenging job market.
Enhance your marketability
If you are currently unemployed or underemployed, getting an LLM or MS not only adds to your skill base, but keeps you from having a gaping hole in your CV. If you have been out of the legal market for a while, an LLM can provide a useful combination of retraining and credential enhancement.
Expand your expertise
An LLM or MS offers the opportunity to change career focus or expand your practice areas. By choosing the right specialist program, an HR specialist can become an employee benefits specialist or a general attorney can become intellectual property expert.
Improve your earnings
Switching fields or employers, or becoming an expert in a complicated field is an excellent way to increase your income.
The quality of your education will be one of the determining factors in your ability to switch employers, as well as the alumni network of both your JD and post-graduate law schools.
Deepen your knowledge
An LLM or MS can help you gain a deeper understanding in a legal field too complex to be mastered in a JD program. For instance, in many countries, information technology and privacy law has become so complicated that even those who trained as IT professionals find the extra training extremely helpful.
Earn a promotion
Getting an LLM or MS from a nationally recognized law school, such as The John Marshall Law School, can help you build your credentials, gain a distinct advantage at your current company, and move up the corporate ladder.
