Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School (AJMLS) is excited to announce two new co-enrollment programs for its students. Upon successful completion of the first year curriculum, students may apply to co-enroll in the Employment Law J.D./LL.M. Program or the Criminal Justice Certificate Program. These new programs allow students to co-enroll in classes that will grant credit towards either their LL.M. or Certificate.
Students participating in the J.D./LL.M. program will graduate with both their J.D. and LL.M. in Employment Law. The J.D. program requires 88 credit hours to graduate, and the LL.M. program requires 24 credit hours. Students can take up to 12 credit hours of co-enrollment coursework while working towards their J.D. degree. Students would graduate with their J.D. and, after taking the Bar Exam, would return to complete 12 credit hours needed for the LL.M. online. Once the J.D. is conferred, the remaining 12 hours can be completed in one year’s time completely online to have the LL.M. conferred. Most dual degree programs require that program participants complete both degree requirements before being granted their J.D. At AJMLS, students have the opportunity to earn their J.D., graduate, take the Bar, and finish their LL.M. all while practicing law.

Students participating in the Criminal Justice Certificate Program (CJCP) will graduate with both their J.D. and Certificate in Criminal Justice. The CJCP is an excellent option for students considering practicing in the criminal justice arena or students who have a general interest in criminal justice. The Program packages electives and required courses that are strongly recommended for a potential career in criminal law. However, participation will not preclude a student from pursuing other fields of practice and participants will still have at least seven credits to use for additional electives of their choice.
