Programs for Non-Lawyers
Georgetown University Law Center's world-renowned Graduate Tax Program has the largest tax curriculum of any school in the United States. Students who are experienced tax professionals but not attorneys can now take advanced tax courses at Georgetown Law and earn an online Master of Studies in Law (MSL) in Taxation. Non-lawyers are also eligible to complete a certificate in International Taxation or State and Local Taxation. While the online MSL in Taxation will not prepare or qualify students for the practice of law or to sit for any state bar exam, it does provide experienced tax professionals an opportunity to study tax law at the most advanced levels.
Georgetown Law's new Master’s degree program is for non-lawyers who need to better understand the technology law landscape. The first cohort began classes in Fall 2020. More than ever, lawyers and policymakers need a deep understanding of technology and the legal frameworks around it. Law firms are building specialized practices to meet increased legal demands around data security, privacy, artificial intelligence, fintech, and emerging technologies. Elected officials and government agencies require well-grounded counsel to update tech law and regulations. The business and public interest worlds alike demand advocates who can address new legal, ethical and societal challenges as they arise alongside rapid advances in technology.
