Summary: Taking advantage of the school’s strengths, Seattle University Law School will offer three new LL.M. degrees and a master of legal studies degree.

Seattle University School of Law now offers three new master of laws degrees (LL.M.) on top of a master of legal studies degree (MLS). Two of the fields of study – technology and tribal law – are available now as an option while the third field – elder law – will be available soon.

The newly appointed director of graduate programs Erica Wolf said, “So many other fields – health care, business, technology – intersect with the law but don’t require the same in-depth legal knowledge a JD provides. For people in related fields and industries, this program is the Goldilocks of legal degrees – just enough, but not too much.”

The law school is offering their first degree for non-lawyers with the master of legal studies program.

Wolf is a graduate of the law school in 2005 and is a national expert in Indian trusts and estates law. She has been involved with the Center for Indian Law & Policy for roughly 10 years as an adjunct faculty member, supervising attorney, managing attorney, and executive director. She will continue her work with the CILP as a senior attorney that focuses her time on outreach, educational programs, marketing, and tribal engagement in trust and estates and land issues.

The master’s program requires 30-credits in general studies or three specialties: tribal law, business development, and innovation and technology. There are two required classes and four core classes but the rest of the credits can be chosen from approved electives and independent study.

Wolf explained, “The program will allow people to better position themselves in their careers, especially if their work is heavily regulated. They’ll be able to alert their employers or firms to legal issues as they arise.”

The LL.M. programs are 24 credits and can be done in one year as a full-time student or in two years as a part-time student.
