TEXAS A&M LAW’S INNOVATIVE DISTANCE EDUCATION PROGRAMS
We offer two distance learning programs, both in areas where knowledge and skills are currently in high demand: Wealth Management and Risk Management.
“Our goals are to create an online flexible learning environment for the busy professional and to use state-of-the-art distance learning technology to deliver an educational experience that rivals what our students receive here on campus.”
- Executive Professor and Associate Dean William Byrnes
The programs are entirely online, which gives working professionals and students who have personal obligations the flexibility they need to learn and obtain new skills with minimal disruption to their already full lives.
In our programs, we don’t just put a camera in the back of a classroom to record a professor’s lecture. That approach is outdated and ineffective. Instead, we use state-of-the-art pedagogical techniques that take advantage of the latest in online learning technology.
Every course is specifically prepared with distance learning students in mind.
Each program takes approximately six semesters to complete, and upon completion, you have the opportunity to visit us at the law school to receive an honored “Aggie Ring,” making you a lifetime member of the extensive Aggie Network.
Available Distance Education Programs
Two degrees — one strong curriculum
Two different degrees are offered for each program—an LL.M. graduate degree for lawyers (for those who have already received a J.D.), and a Masters of Jurisprudence (M.Jur.) for non-lawyer professionals. While non-lawyers may have an extra required course or pre-requisite in U.S. Law, to put them on equal footing with their lawyer compatriots, the program structures and content are then essentially the same, regardless of J.D. status.
This program is fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges and has obtained acquiescence from the American Bar Association (ABA).
