This month, Penn Law launched eight new massive open online courses (MOOCs) on the Coursera platform that will bring legal education to learners far beyond the traditional pool of J.D., LLM, and ML candidates. Through online education, Penn Law will continue to expand its educational expertise to new audiences who seek to gain a better understanding of the law, and the most recent offerings represent the Law School’s biggest commitment yet to the online space.
Working alongside the Legal Education Programs team, Theodore K. Warner Professor of Law and Professor of Real Estate Michael Knoll and Professor of Law Polk Wagner recruited many of Penn Law’s top standing, clinical, and adjunct faculty in a broad collaboration to produce a new brand of practical legal education for non-attorneys. These courses focus on intellectual property law and regulatory compliance, responding to a steep increase in demand for applicable legal knowledge from professionals across industries.
Penn Law’s Legal Education Programs provide a range of offerings that allow professionals to enhance their expertise with legal knowledge.
