A: The AALS has two tracks for master’s degrees in law. Both are administered by the American Bar Association and both have several requirements, including a written essay, shadowing an attorney who is either practicing or retired in your field of study and one hour per week of supervised practical experience in a legal setting. To complete each track you must also spend two years working full-time at a law firm mentoring new lawyers. In addition to having earned your J.D., you must apply directly to the program from which you wish to graduate with no second chances allowed!

Q: What kind of career options do I have after earning my J.D.?
A: There are many ways that people benefit from obtaining their J.D.. Some choose to continue on as attorneys while others choose other paths such as becoming a judge, a mediator or even going into another field altogether! Whatever path you choose should be something that interests you and makes it fun for you during those long hours studying behind closed doors! Our favorite part about being an attorney is helping clients find the best course of action that provides them with peace of mind when dealing with complex issues related to family law matters every day!!
