Expand your career opportunities by increasing your understanding of the law.
The University of Utah Master of Legal Studies program offers a cutting-edge curriculum that immerses students in the law, helps them understand the intricacies of the U.S. legal system, and situates them for career advancement.
Designed for working professionals, courses run every other weekend (Fridays and Saturdays) from August through August. Students complete the program in a single year. The program includes an optional international field trip.
Our MLS program uses a cohort system, so students progress together and form lasting relationships with each other.
For students interested in a specific area of law, the program includes the flexibility to replace courses from the standard MLS curriculum with law school offerings.
The MLS degree does not qualify graduates to sit for the bar exam or to practice law. Credits taken toward the MLS degree cannot be transferred to a JD degree
