Associate Dean Beth Haas moderated a panel recently at the 7th Annual Legal Master’s conference in San Antonio. Her panel, titled “Preparing Legal Masters Students for Success from Day One” discussed how an admitted student can be prepared to successfully navigate the legal master’s program to maximize their learning experience. Haas is a co-author of a forthcoming book “Navigating Your Legal Master’s Program: A Roadmap for Success,” and it is designed to prepare legal master’s students to return to the classroom for their rigorous and engaging academic journey. 

Haas is a nationally recognized expert in online legal education. Before joining Miami Law in 2023, she served as Associate Dean, Graduate Studies and Online Education and Associate Professor of Law at Drexel University’s Kline School of Law in Philadelphia. At Miami Law she directs all strategy for developing exceptional and engaging online degree and certificate programs. 

Haas was a pioneer in online legal education.  In addition to teaching many core courses in the face-to-face JD classroom, she developed and delivered Drexel Law’s first fully asynchronous J.D.-level online courses more than a decade ago for which she received Drexel University’s Outstanding Online Faculty Award.  In her role as Associate Dean, she then developed, exclusively in-house, one of the largest and most rigorous online Master of Legal Studies (MLS) programs in the country, along with eight online post-bac graduate certificates and three online LL.M degrees. 

Most recently, Haas has helped to create Miami Law’s new on-line Master of Legal Studies.
