Learn the Law, Elevate your Career
What is an MSL?
Our Master in the Study of Law degree will give you insights into the law and the legal system. Perfect for anyone whose profession or job touches the law, the MSL equips you with knowledge and skills that will advance your career. Whether you have always been interested in the law—or you interface with regulation or legal issues on a consistent basis—this degree may be right for you.
How can the MSL degree help my career?
Graduates of our MSL program return to the workplace with a greater understanding of the U.S. legal system. From banking to education, from health care to human resources—and everything in between—the law touches every aspect of society. Earning an MSL will help you speak the language of the law, understand contemporary legal issues, and see the law’s real-world implications. Our curriculum is thoughtful and practical, and taught by top faculty at the nationally ranked Moritz College of Law at The Ohio State University.
Is the degree flexible?
Yes. Our MSL program is designed specifically to allow you to tailor it to fit your needs. You can complete your degree online, in-person, or through a mix of both. You can study at a pace that matches your busy schedule. Full-time students can complete the program in roughly nine months. Part-time students have the flexibility to complete their degree over two years or more.
What are the admissions requirement?
Students need an undergraduate degree to enroll. However, no standardized test score (GRE, GMAT, LSAT, etc.) is required to apply. Our MSL program is designed specifically to help working professionals leverage knowledge and understanding of the law so they can be more effective in their careers.
