The Master of Legal Studies program is designed to have a balance of foundational training on "thinking like a lawyer" and specialized courses tailored to the student's interest and career focus. As such, the program is designed to be completed in three phases (as outlined below). The Full-Time program can be completed in 9 months. The Part-Time program can be spread out over 2-4 years.
The program is a 26-32 unit program. 26 units is the minimum to complete, but students wishing to do more may take up to 32 units (with the optional units 27-32 coming in the final semester at no additional charge).
