To keep supporting students during the Covid19 crisis, most graduate schools have moved their programs online. That means you have more options than ever when it comes to choosing an online Government Law and Policy program from which to earn your Master of Science in Law. 

At first glance, these programs might look similar, but not all online learning is created equal. Courses originally produced for in-person instruction don’t translate directly to the digital space. The MSL from McGeorge School of Law, on the other hand, was designed for online learning.

Online learning might be your first choice, or you might be reluctantly investigating remote learning because you don’t want the pandemic to delay your goal of getting a master’s degree. In either case, choosing the right online learning program can make a big difference in the value you get from the program. As you decide between MSL programs, consider these factors:

McGeorge Law Professor Co-Authors PPIC Report on Calif. Freshwater Ecosystems

Associate Professor of Lawyering Skills and Faculty Director for Online Learning Jennifer Harder recently co-authored a report for the Public Policy Institute of California. Professor Harder joins a dozen other water experts and California professors on the report, “A Path Forward for California’s Freshwater Ecosystems.” It has gained attention from news services, environmental nonprofits and California state regulatory agencies, such as the Central Valley Flood Protection Board (CVFPB). The report is also featured on courthousenews.com, a nationwide news service that serves lawyers and specializes in Civil Litigation.

 “A Path Forward for California’s Freshwater Ecosystems” focuses on California’s response to threats to freshwater ecosystems and provides a call to action for state agencies. These ecosystems are vital to the economic, social and environmental health of the state, but have been threatened by pollution, non-native species and climate change (Mount et. al, 2019). The authors propose ecosystem-based methods of freshwater management, which are increasingly necessary as the state faces an uncertain environmental future.
