The MLS degree emphasizes a foundation in the law and basic legal concepts. The opportunity to customize this degree with focus areas makes it relevant to many applications. MLS students come from a variety of backgrounds but share the common goal of obtaining familiarity with legal thought and exploring the relation of law to their targeted fields of work or study.

    A minimum of a 3.00 cumulative GPA in the last 60 hours of an applicant’s bachelor's program is preferred. Prospective students may earn admission with a cumulative GPA below 3.00 if the other assets included in the application package are strong, such as but not limited to:
  • A personal statement that addresses a low GPA or inconsistent academic performance.
  • Improved academic performance in subsequent degrees.
  • Significant work history since completing a bachelor’s degree.

    All applicants must submit:
  • Graduate admission application.

    *Transcripts can be unofficial through the FastApp process. Official transcripts reflecting degree conferral(s) will be required if an applicant is admitted.
  • Additional Admission Requirements:
      If English is not your native language, and you have not completed a bachelor’s degree or higher at a regionally accredited institution in the United States, you must provide evidence of English proficiency.
