This fall will see the start of the new MSL Online program, a unique opportunity that brings the rigorous legal training of the residential program to an even wider group of STEM professionals. Though the application process, admissions standards, academic requirements and curriculum will be consistent between the two formats, online education has to be approached in a different way than that of a traditional class. For the past year, the Law School’s faculty have been working closely with experts from Northwestern University Information Technology to thoughtfully redesign the MSL classes for the online environment and ensure a rich and varied learning experience. The result is online courses that incorporates a combination of synchronous and asynchronous activities, including regular engagement with instructors and peers, so that the students feels fully integrated into their course of studies. Just like their residential counterparts, the MSL Online cohort will participate in an orientation program held by Professors Martha Kanter and Sue Provenzano. The activities in orientation are used to introduce STEM professionals to legal thought and education. Professors Kanter and Provenzano spent a day filming their presentation in the halls of Northwestern Law School. The material will later be transformed into an orientation video that will be dynamic, active, and prepare MSL online students for their new and exciting endeavor. Check out the pictures!
