USC’s Gould School of Law will begin offering an online program starting next fall which will let foreign attorneys and students earn master of laws degrees without leaving their home countries.

Only the law school at Washington University in St. Louis offers a similar program, USC officials said. There are about 170 attorneys, judges and other students currently enrolled in USC’s traditional master of laws degree program.

School officials are hoping to enroll 35 students in the new program, which will cost about $2,000 a unit, approximately the same as the traditional program.
