MJ sounds like a MSLS or MALS, essentially a Masters in Legal Studies. I used to instruct in a MSLS program, the degree is useful to paralegals and government employees looking to promote due to the erosion of the job market which requires everyone to have some sort of MA to get to the next level.. However, unless you already have a job in the legal or public administration field, I doubt it will enhance any career propsects. It definitely is not a JD degree and at best you would end up taking orders from some second year associate attorney. The curriculum is pretty basic and not near as intense as law school. Programs that dwell heavy on theory instead of hard skills like research and writing are questionnable.
