Children's Law and Policy
MJ in Children's Law and Policy: Loyola's Master of Jurisprudence (MJ) in Children's Law and Policy is an online degree program for professionals who work with children and families in a variety of disciplines and fields of practice, including social work, education, health care, and the justice system. The two-year, part-time master's degree program is designed to provide individuals with a firm understanding of law and policy as they affect children and families and to prepare graduates for leadership positions in their fields. The program can be completed completely online, but students are required to attend one Education Immersion Weekend at the Civitas Child Law Center in Chicago, Illinois.
