Arizona State University offers an online master of science in legal studies (MLS) requiring 30 credits and can be completed in just 12 months. This online MLS focuses on an understanding of legal principles and how they are applied in practice in professional settings.
The MLS program is a customizable degree with eight possible focus areas:
Corporate and Health Care Compliance
HR and Employment Law
Intellectual Property Law
Law and Sustainability
Sports Law and Business
Each concentration is four courses in a particular subject. Students may choose more than one concentration, or simply a general law track. Some classes are conducted in a cohort model. This means that students progress on a trajectory in concert with fellow students. The program as a whole, however, is not a cohort model.
