Why online education
Many individuals in the pharmaceutical and medical device industries want to learn about the legal aspects of their professions but cannot realistically commit to spending time attending live classes on a set schedule. Online education is flexible and convenient, as it allows you to complete your coursework anywhere and anytime. Students also enjoy the interactivity and individualized feedback available through an online educational experience.
How programs are taught
The Pharmaceutical & Medical Device Law & Compliance Certificates rely on innovative learning modalities to create a level of interactivity between professor and student similar to -- and sometimes even greater than -- the traditional law school classroom. Examples include moderated discussion boards, individual and group-based problem-solving exercises, and one-on-one professor-student tutorials. The low student-faculty ratio promotes strong relationships between professors and students. Professors participate actively in discussion forums and Q&A boards and give students individualized feedback on all written work.
When programs start
Seton Hall Law School's online Graduate Certificate Programs are offered at least three times a year during our Spring, Summer, and Fall semesters. Exact start dates for each certificate program are listed in the Certificates At-A-Glance section.
