MSL Program Information

Modified: January 12, 2017

Calling all STEM PhDs interested in Law, Business, & Technology!
There is an increasing demand for individuals with scientific and technical training who can work in cross-functional roles in the space where law, business, and science/technology intersect. The Master of Science in Law (MSL) at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law is an innovative, one-year degree program designed exclusively for individuals trained in science, technology, engineering, math, or medicine. MSL students examine the interface of law, business, and science/technology; learn to communicate across disciplines; develop, protect, and manage intellectual property; bring ideas to market; and navigate the legal and regulatory structures that exist in STEM setting. Scholarships are available.

MSL students are well positioned to pursue careers as patent agents; patent coordinators; scientific advisors; regulatory strategists; compliance officers; scientific advisors; consultants; IP/patent portfolio managers; business developers; business analysts; entrepreneurs; company intrapreneurs; government regulators; policy analysts; and more.

Learn more at an open house event taking place on January 28 at 10am in downtown Chicago to learn more. You can connect with MSL students and staff, observe a class, and take a tour of the Law School.
