The Master of Legal Studies program is designed for professionals from disciplines outside of the law who wish to advance their careers and capabilities by obtaining an advanced degree and a deep understanding of the legal and regulatory issues that impact their industry or field of interest. It is ideal for non-lawyer professionals in any field – from the private, nonprofit or government sectors – who need to understand and navigate law, regulation, disputes or attorneys.

UCLA Law's M.L.S. course of study provides intensive, graduate-level training for leaders in fields such as contracting, compliance and human resources, as well as for those who will benefit from learning how to "think like a lawyer" more broadly, including entrepreneurs, executives, professional services providers, community leaders, journalists, paralegals and scholars specializing in adjacent fields. The M.L.S. degree does not qualify its recipients to sit for a state bar examination or become licensed to practice law.

Our program has eight specializations to choose from. M.L.S. students may earn their degrees in nine months of full‐time study or in two-to-four years of part-time study while continuing to work in their profession.
