The College of Law offers a master of studies in law degree. The master of studies in law (MLW) is an entry-level graduate degree designed for those who seek a better understanding of the law, legal institutions and legal methods. The master of studies in law program can benefit those who work with lawyers, those whose work is governed by law and regulations, and those in professions where knowledge of the law is valuable. Although designed for professionals to enhance their careers, the master of studies in law program can help re-direct and launch career paths, too. The degree does not qualify the holder to sit for a bar examination or to practice law, nor will it be considered as a qualifier for entry into the J.D. program. Classes taken toward the master of studies in law degree will not be later applied toward a J.D. degree.
