WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- A representative from Wake Forest University School of Law will exhibit at the Alaska SHRM Conference set for May 18-19 in Anchorage.


The MSL degree and certificate programs are specially designed for professionals who need to navigate the law to better manage risk in the workplace.

“The MSL degree and certificate programs allow professionals in a wide range of industries to benefit from the market-driven curriculum, helping them become even more valuable assets and reduce overall risk in the workplace, while earning a valuable degree or credential, “ says MSL Director Ellen Murphy (JD ’02), assistant dean of instructional design. “Classes are taught by Wake Forest Law full-time faculty in collaboration with industry experts, so students benefit from team teaching in an environment focused on real-world issues."


Current MSL degree student Sean E. Rogers of Ithaca, New York, says he couldn’t be happier that he decided to pursue the MSL degree. “I’m very impressed with how well everything is organized, and with the rigor and richness of the content. The professors and staff have been super responsive and available. What you and Wake (Forest) Law have created is very impressive!"


Tuition for the MSL degree and certificate is $900 per credit hour: $10,800 for the certificate or $27,000 for the degree at the current tuition rate. Students can expect to enroll in 3-6 credit hours per semester. For more information or to apply, visit http://msl.law.wfu.edu/.
