The Master of Jurisprudence (MJ) in Rule of Law for Development is a 30 academic credit hours degree program, which comprises ten taught courses and a major rule of law capstone project. The MJ curriculum includes a specially tailored course on basic introduction to law and legal methods, which provides the background necessary for success in the other courses. Students complete all courses at Loyola’s John Felice Rome Center in Italy from September to April and then complete their capstone project by 30 June each year from their home countries, through online communication with the project advisor.
