Students interested in obtaining a graduate certificate in legal studies can begin online coursework at the University of Tennessee College of Law this summer. The first course in the certificate program will be “The Structure and Operation of the American Legal System.” Enrollment in the master of legal studies program officially begins in Fall 2021, but students enrolled in the certificate program may, with approval, transfer to the master’s program. The college announced in May it would offer these new options as alternatives to the traditional three-year law degree for those who need to be conversant in the law but do not wish to practice it.
