The University of Illinois College of Law has launched a Master of Studies in Law (MSL) program and is enrolling students for the spring 2015 semester. The MSL is designed for accomplished professionals and academics who want to increase their understanding of law and legal analysis in order to strengthen their professional skills. It is a non-professional, terminal degree program designed for those who have had no legal training and who do not desire a professional law degree.

But will professionals find these new courses useful?
