Programs for Non-Lawyers

Now there is an opportunity to study law at one of America's top law schools without enrolling in a three-year program.

Certificate in Disability Legal Studies Program

The University of Pittsburgh School of Law created a Certificate in Disability Legal Studies Program. This program is available to both students enrolled at the University of Pittsburgh in a non-School of Law graduate program and candidates with an earned Master's degree.

Master of Studies in Law Degree

Pitt Law's Master of Studies in Law Degree (MSL) provides education about law to people who use law -- or will use law -- in their careers and who want to learn more about legal studies, but who do not want to become lawyers. You can obtain this degree in one-year full time, or part time over the course of up to four years. The MSL Program consists of regular law school courses with JD students.
