Why Do We Need a Master's Degree in Law?

Why do we need a master's degree in law?
There are several reasons that force applicants to create more work for the admissions committee of law faculties.

The first reason - the labor market does not stand still, demanding from specialists new knowledge and competencies within the framework of their profession. When choosing candidates for a particular position, employers give preference to those who hold a master's degree in law.

The second reason, rather forced, arises when the bachelor's degree is not enough to obtain the necessary qualifications and work in the specialty. A master’s degree in law is required for many senior positions in government and local government, law enforcement and judicial authorities.

The third reason is the continuation of legal postgraduate education to obtain the degree of candidate of legal sciences and doctorate in law.
