Students in Michigan Law's inaugural Master of Advanced Corporation Law (MACL) program began their studies this week. MACL is the first degree of its kind designed for U.S. and internationally trained lawyers who want to specialize in U.S. corporate and securities law, and gain an international comparative perspective on both. It is an intensive, rigorous, single-summer residential experience that allows students to earn an advanced degree in 12 weeks.
"MACL is a unique opportunity for students to focus intently on corporate law, learning in Michigan Law's enriching environment from accomplished and experienced professors," said Theresa Kaiser-Jarvis, assistant dean for international affairs. "This degree is perfect for early and mid-career practitioners who want to move into corporate work or take their corporate practice to the next level."
The students’ countries of origin include China, Colombia, Malaysia, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, and the United States. The students will complete 20 credit hours in-residence, including three mandatory courses, three elective courses, and a writing requirement. Each course lasts four weeks, so that in each four-week period, a student will take one four-credit mandatory course and one two-credit elective. The writing project, with an accompanying workshop-type seminar, will last for the entire 12 weeks.
The students will graduate from the program in August.
