Do you want to understand the law and use it in your career without actually becoming a lawyer? If so, the Master of Legal Studies (MLS) may be right for you. The MLS is a 30-credit graduate program for those interested in learning about the law, or for professionals whose work intersects with the law. You can earn this master’s degree within one year. The MLS program is customized to meet your career goals with more than 200 unique courses to choose from, or you can focus on some of our more popular areas including:
The Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law offers concurrent degree programs with the W. P. Carey School of Business, the School of Sustainability, and the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism, saving you almost a semester of coursework. The MLS program is flexible, with fall and spring starts, full-time and part-time options, and can be completed on campus or online. The fall application priority deadline is July 30, and June 15 for international students who require a Visa. The spring application priority deadline is November 30, and October 30 for international students who require a Visa. Information about the application process can be found online.
