Demystifying the Law
Located in the state known for its commitment to civil society, harmonious problem solving, and cutting-edge developments in sustainable business, Champlain College is pleased to introduce you to our unique Master of Science in Law program, a robust higher education alternative.
Our passion is educating non-lawyers about the law; in a highly-regulated world dependent on its rule, the law is too important to be understood by only a few specialists. We see the law not as a set of rules, but a set of tools – tools to help you improve your work and enhance your career.
