The Master of Legal Studies (M.L.S.) degree program is designed for individuals interested in developing a better understanding and practical application of the law as it affects their careers and/or areas of interest but who are not interested in practicing law. This 36-hour program enables professionals to gain a foundation in U.S. law in as little as 18 months, without pursuing a full law degree. The M.L.S. is designed to enhance the effectiveness of a broad spectrum of professionals whose work involves regulations, negotiations, policy and procedures, working with lawyers, and understanding legal issues pertinent to community and work place environments.
Please note that some core requirements may not be available until the 2020-2021 academic year.
