Employment and Human Resource Law Concentration

Mastering human resource management and mitigating risk can be daunting as the legal landscape responds to new working conditions and the effects of the pandemic, and realigns with new regulations.

The Master’s of Jurisprudence concentration in Employment and Human Resource Law will differentiate you from your colleagues and give you the insights you need to navigate this emerging legal field.

Steve Sheppard Web 2021

There are three main shifts driving the evolution of human resource management and how it interacts with the law: the emergence of non-traditional work modalities, increased dependence on data analytics and artificial intelligence, and the shift from management practices based solely upon the employer perspective. Enhance your ability to navigate this changing field through our M.Jur. program.
