MJ, Employment and Labor Law, Tulane Law School Class of 2023
I consider myself a life-long learner, attending multiple continuing education programs, courses, or
online self-exploring; however, returning to “school,” wow, this has been an experience. My name is
Cristina Rangel, and I enrolled at Tulane University Law School to better understand employment law and enhance my knowledge in the Human Resources (HR) field. A demanding
field that works within the scope of the law. As HR professionals, we are called upon daily to interpret policies, ensure compliance with employment law, and oversee many facets of employee + employer relationships. A world that has become very complex.
When I first started in human resources, I landed the job by chance. My path to HR was not clear—I had no formal training, I was inexperienced, nor did I know the extent of how it interacted with the law. Tulane’s Master of Jurisprudence in Employment Law (MJ-LEL) offers that deep understanding; it answers the question of “why.” The MJ-LEL is a comprehensive program specializing in employment law and has given me a strong foundation. Each class I’ve taken expanded my knowledge and skill set to become a better business partner. I enjoyed the program’s rigors, and the case readings—while highly challenging, have been gratifying. I never found myself pursuing a legal education, yet here I am today to say it’s possible. If you want to continue to evolve and improve your craft, Tulane’s Master of Jurisprudence is the program that will provide professional development and further your career. This has been a remarkable journey.
