IN-PERSON MLS PROGRAM
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.
Our MLS program uses a cohort system, so students progress together and form lasting relationships with each other.
The In-Person MLS format is designed for working professionals and courses run every other weekend on Fridays and Saturdays throughout the year. Students complete the program in a single year and attend classes in the fall, spring, and summer semesters.
For students interested in a specific area of law, the In-Person MLS format allows the flexibility for replace courses from the standard MLS curriculum with JD course offerings.
*The MLS degree does not qualify graduates to sit for the bar exam or practice law as an attorney. The degree does meet the educational requirement for LPP licensure. Credits taken toward the MLS degree cannot be transferred to a JD degree.
