Master of Science in Law — Crisis Management

 

Need

Maryland Carey Law’s MSL in Crisis Management prepares students to lead their institution’s response to crises with a special focus on the legal, regulatory and public issues associated with it.

Terrorist attacks, pandemics and other crises demand fast, effective responses from governments, medical facilities, educational institutions, non-profits and business.

Crises also require public and private organizations to coordinate successfully with emergency management partners and response teams. Working together, they must navigate swiftly through a maze of organizational structures, laws, regulations, directives, best practices and standard operating procedures.

Focus

After completing the MSL’s first semester of core courses, students will take an in-depth survey course in Crisis Management in their second semester, followed in their third semester by seminars with crisis management practitioners covering such topics as:

  • Emergency Management
  • Emergency Public Health Response
  • Cybersecurity
  • Homeland Security and Counterterrorism

The program culminates in a capstone project in which students focus on a practical challenge in their chosen field under the guidance of a faculty or practitioner advisor.

All courses will be taught by members of the Maryland Carey Law as well as experts from the University of Maryland’s Center for Health and Homeland Security and other practitioners.
