MASTER OF LEGAL STUDIES (M.L.S.)
Even if you’re busy raising a family or working full time, a legal degree is still well within your reach. Our accessible online M.L.S. program enables working professionals and caretakers to become informed, innovative problem-solvers in fields that intersect with law.
Core M.L.S. courses equip students with strong foundational knowledge of substantive legal areas as well as effective communication skills. Elective and capstone courses allow students to pursue subjects related to their own professional interests.
Focusing on the areas where law and other industries intersect—such as health care, compliance, and negotiation—the M.L.S. program offers two concentrations. Both include elective on-campus residencies, during which students have the opportunity to engage in discussions with faculty and leaders in law, government, and other fields.
