Washington University Careers
Washington University School of Law, in St. Louis, has long been touted as a top residential law school. The school surprised many—and shocked some—last week by announcing they will begin offering a new online law degree. Washington's first online class of legal eagles will take their virtual seats in January 2013.
The Washington University online law degree will be tightly targeted. The new degree will be a master of laws in U.S. law for foreign lawyers (LLM)—not a juris doctorate degree (JD).

Like Vermont, Loyola and Alabama, the Washington Law degree is targeted to business professionals eager to better understand and navigate the legal and regulatory structures imposed by the government on their industries.
Washington is targeting foreign applicants who do not wish to attend a campus residence in the USA as their primary audience. Many say this is a smart move: extending an elite American...
