The University of Cincinnati’s Master of Legal Studies Program

The University of Cincinnati’s Master of Legal Studies program is designed to grant students a working knowledge of the law that they can put to use in an industry or career that interacts with the law. This degree provides new skills and knowledge to enhance your existing skills rather than prepare you for a new career.  The MLS program may provide alternatives for individuals who do not want to attend law school but do want to increase their legal knowledge. Master of Legal Studies degree students may enter the program for a variety of reasons, such as working with legal professionals regularly, working in highly regulated industries, or are business owners that want to be able to handle more legal aspects of their business.

This fully online, asynchronous legal studies program is designed for working professionals who would benefit from a sophisticated understanding of the U.S. legal system but do not intend to practice law.  It helps professionals understand laws and regulations so they can perform better in their current and future roles.
