WHY AN MLS?
A Master of Legal Studies (MLS) degree offers an exciting opportunity to enhance your career credentials by gaining legal knowledge without obtaining a law degree.
The MLS is designed for non-lawyers who work regularly with laws and regulations and could benefit from a greater understanding of the law as it relates to their field in a current or future position.
An MLS might appeal to anyone who works regularly with lawyers, or with laws and regulations, such as corporate and nonprofit managers, accountants, auditors, government employees, realtors, engineers, scientists, educators, health care professionals, court employees, law enforcement personnel, and human resource professionals.
