Mercer Law to Offer Masters in Comparative Jurisprudence


Mercer Law will begin to offer a Masters in Comparative Jurisprudence (MCJ) in International Business and Trade Law* starting summer 2016. The one-year program will include study on Mercer's Macon and Atlanta campuses and will be the only one of its kind in the Southeast.

The program will provide foreign lawyers academic and practical training with an emphasis on international business and trade law. In addition to traditional classes, the program will offer externship course options for experiential learning. Externship placements in commercial businesses, law firms and government agencies will allow students excellent opportunities to understand the realities of international business and trade practices in the United States.

For more information on the program, contact David Ritchie, Professor of Law & Philosophy, and Director of International Initiatives.
