The University of Michigan Law School offers a Master of Advanced Corporation Law (MACL) degree to help students advance their careers. The MACL program is the first 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.
Spend one summer—12 weeks, from May to July—studying and living in residence at Michigan Law. Taught by faculty experts with strength in international and comparative law, as well as U.S. corporate and securities law, the MACL degree’s coursework and writing exercises are designed to provide intellectually rich preparation for future leaders in transnational corporate practice. The 20-credit program of study includes 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.
Applicants must be practicing lawyers or have a practicing-level law degree from the United States or abroad. In addition, a high level of English proficiency in reading, writing, speaking, and listening is required, as evidenced by an iBT TOEFL score of 100 or an IELTS score of at least 7.0. Only applicants who are residents of Australia, Canada (other than Quebec), Ireland, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, or the United States (other than Puerto Rico) and who have completed a rigorous full-time program of at least three years of post-secondary education in one of these countries are not required to submit English test scores.
