The Master of Legal Studies (MLS) degree provides options for people who are interested in furthering their education in law but do not necessarily want to attend law school to become an attorney. Our program is a fully online, asynchronous program designed for working professionals who would benefit from a sophisticated understanding of the U.S. legal system but do NOT intend to practice law. The MLS program provides new skills and knowledge to enhance your existing ones rather than to prepare you for an entirely new career. This degree will not permit you to take the bar examination and so it is not intended for people who want to practice law. Potential students may, but are not required to, submit a LSAT score upon application.
You may have always had an interest in law but unsure if law school is for you. If you have your bachelor’s degree, regardless of what subject it’s in, you’re eligible to apply for an MLS degree. Obtaining your MLS degree may provide you with opportunities to move into a new legal-focused career or advance your current career path, without becoming a lawyer.
Successful applicants to the Master of Legal Studies (MLS) program will have a Bachelor’s degree and a minimum GPA of 2.75. Applications will be reviewed holistically, such that work experience and other factors indicating the likelihood of success will be given considerable weight.
While the University of Cincinnati Online MLS program is not requiring any admissions test, prospective students may submit a GRE, LSAT, GMAT, or other standardized admissions test score to supplement their application. This is encouraged if the potential applicant does not meet the GPA requirement above.
