Degree Programs

In addition to our JD Program, we are proud to offer the world’s first advanced legal degree in animal law (LLM) and the nation’s first Master of Studies in animal law for non-lawyers (MSL).

Both degrees are designed for US and international advocates who wish to focus on animal law in practice, teaching, research or public policy. We are educating students who will become leaders in the field. Study with us online or at our beautiful campus in Portland, Oregon.
