Several new online programs have been made available by University of Nebraska campuses. These programs reflect the dedication that NU has to creating access to quality education to the state of Nebraska and those around the world.
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln recently launched three online law certificates, offered to practicing attorneys desiring to specialize in emerging areas of law. The Cyber and Cyber Security Law certificate focuses on the relationship of technology to law and encompasses commercial industries and private company data as well as military organizations. The Cyber and Telecommunications Law certificate addresses electronic communication in its many forms. The Space Law certificate gives students in-depth study of the national and international laws and regulations that govern activities in outer space.
The certificates are open to all candidates who have a J.D. or foreign law degree. The programs are available completely online without on-campus requirement. Students join classrooms in real-time using voice over internet protocol (VoIP) technology with flexibility for scheduling built in.
