Texas A&M: Investing in Your Future

Since we became part of Texas A&M University in 2013, we’ve invested significant resources to enhance the value of your degree and to improve your experience while you’re here at the law school. We have many more exciting changes in the works, but we’ve already taken several steps to invest in your future.

TEXAS A&M LAW’S INNOVATIVE DISTANCE EDUCATION PROGRAMS

We offer two distance learning programs, both in areas where knowledge and skills are currently in high demand: Wealth Management and Risk Management.

The programs are entirely online, which gives working professionals and students who have personal obligations the flexibility they need to learn and obtain new skills with minimal disruption to their already full lives.

In our programs, we don’t just put a camera in the back of a classroom to record a professor’s lecture. That approach is outdated and ineffective. Instead, we use state-of-the-art pedagogical techniques that take advantage of the latest in online learning technology.

Every course is specifically prepared with distance learning students in mind.

Each program takes approximately six semesters to complete, and upon completion, you have the opportunity to visit us at the law school to receive an honored “Aggie Ring,” making you a lifetime member of the extensive Aggie Network.

Available Distance ​Education Programs

  • Wealth Management
  • Risk Management

Two degrees — one strong curriculum

Two different degrees are offered for each program—an LL.M. graduate degree for lawyers (for those who have already received a J.D.), and a Masters of Jurisprudence (M.Jur.) for non-lawyer professionals. While non-lawyers may have an extra required course or pre-requisite in U.S. Law, to put them on equal footing with their lawyer compatriots, the program structures and content are then essentially the same, regardless of J.D. status.

This school offers programs in:
  • English
