The Judicial Studies Program, in recognition of 25 years on campus, has created a scholarship to support students pursuing a master’s or doctorate degree in judicial studies. The University offers the only judicial studies graduate degree program in the country. Both programs are offered in conjunction with the National Judicial College and the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges, which are headquartered on the Nevada campus. The degree programs are housed within the Grant Sawyer Center for Justice Studies, which is a part of the College of Liberal Arts. The programs provide access to cutting-edge knowledge from a diverse faculty, and seek to improve critical and analytical legal skills for judges. Scholarships will be first awarded during the 2012 academic year.
