Master of Legal Studies (MLS)

General

Program Description

Learn to think like a lawyer without being one.

Many professionals need to know how the law affects their business or industry. A keen understanding of regulations, contracts, policy, and other legal concepts will enable you to alert employers, clients, and customers to legal issues as they arise. A MLS better equips you to see and solve problems through a legal lens. Our MLS degree will help you gain these specialized legal skills and insight so you can position yourself for future leadership and management roles. Your program begins with fundamental courses in the American legal system, legal writing, and research.
