Credit Hours



MJ students are required to complete a written thesis, demonstrating scholarly research of an important legal issue.  The thesis must be of a quality determined to be acceptable by the student's faculty advisor, reflecting mastery of the subject matter explored, critical thinking and clear, sophisticated writing.  The thesis is completed over the course of two semesters in close cooperation with a faculty advisor. This first thesis course will focus on choosing a topic, creating a thesis statement,  detailed outline, research methodology, introduction, and writing a partial draft. This course is for students in the online MJ program.
