Law Firm Management Graduate Certificate

The George Washington University's College of Professional Studies has created a graduate certificate for Law Firm Management. This new 12-credit graduate certificate program is co-sponsored by the Hildebrandt Institute.

"This first-of-its-kind certificate program is the culmination of two years of planning and market testing to design a higher education program that is convenient for busy professionals.  The certificate program provides an overview of theory, structure, operations, and management of the modern law firm."


"These unique, executive education programs consist of a nine-day residency at GW's Graduate Education Center in Alexandria, Va., followed by a three to four month, Internet-based distance learning segment.  Both conclude with a four-day capstone residency at GW. Students successfully completing both certificate programs as well as an independent research project may obtain a Master of Professional Studies degree in Professional Service Firm Management."
