In addition to our comprehensive program directory and numerous resources, we have started an interview series so that students can learn more about individual schools from faculty members. Questions cover material like:
- Unique characteristics of each program
- Advice for online students
- Additional details about concentrations
- Career outlook and advice
- Faculty background

Interview with Timothy Glynn of Seton Hall University — Senior Associate Dean and Professor of Law
Seton Hall University Law School Online offers an online master of jurisprudence and LL.M. with part-time and full-time program options.
“Seton Hall Law School began offering an MSJ degree in Health Law over 20 years ago. The professors in the law school’s Center for Health and Pharmaceutical Law recognized that many nonlegal professionals working in the highly regulated health care space would benefit from a greater understanding of law and legal reasoning. In 2013, Seton Hall Law began to offer the MSJ program completely online, although students also may choose to take electives in-person at the law school.”
These interviews were conducted in May 2018.
