University of Utah to Launch a Master of Legal Studies Degree

New, three-semester master's program to launch in September

The University of Utah's Quinney College of Law has announced that it will launch a new Master of Legal Studies degree program this fall.

The new MLS program is specifically designed for people interested in the law but don't want to practice as an attorney.

The program will be delivered on a part-time schedule, with classes held ever other Friday and Saturday. It will take three semesters to complete.

The MLS' course curriculum will includes classes like "Conflict and Legal Crisis Management;” “Contracts in the Modern Economy;” “Procuring and Managing Legal Services;” and “Lawsuits and Litigation.” Students will also be able to choose from a list of elective classes from the school's JD curriculum. 

An increasing number of schools are launching Master of Legal Studies degrees and other master's-level programs in law aimed at non-lawyers. These are different from LL.M. programs in that most LL.M.s will require a JD or other undergraduate law degree to apply.

Utah's new MLS program will launch in September 2018.
