John Marshall Law School

The John Marshall Law School was founded in 1899 and accredited by the American Bar Association in 1941. John Marshall has grown into a multidimensional law school by providing the Juris Doctor along with advanced degrees—Master of Laws (LLM) and Master of Science (MS). For an LLM program, applicants must have acquired a JD or equivalent degree, whereas MS applicants need only have a bachelor's or equivalent degree. The LLM and MS programs are run by specialized program centers, which are active in current events related to their fields of study.
