OCU Law announces new Master in Legal Studies program
Oklahoma City University School of Law is launching a new Masters in Legal Studies (MLS) degree beginning in January of 2021. Responding to multiple industry needs for a strategic, online program for those already in the workforce, this program allows those enrolled to learn the law for “non-lawyers.”
OCU School of Law has crafted the MLS program for anyone with a bachelor’s degree (in any subject) who needs to understand increasingly complex legal issues as they relate to their company and the work they perform. This program will be of interest to employers who wish to increase the knowledge of key staff, as well as employees who wish to further their careers in areas such as banking, project management, procurement, compliance, contract writing and management, and more.
This is a convenient program that requires only 30 credit hours and is 100% online. It is currently a part-time program taking as little as two years. A core curriculum is required for all MLS students, but students can choose an area of concentration. Corporate Compliance - Banking and Finance, which includes Business and Banking Law, Ethics and Compliance, and Regulatory and Compliance Systems, is designed for finance, accounting, or banking law professionals. Aerospace and Aviation – which includes Negotiation, Government Contracts & Conflicts of Law; Federal, State, and Local appropriations, and more. The MLS degree offers the skill development needed to be successful in business.
As business and industry navigate increasingly complex legal territory, having internal staff with expertise can better position firms to stay within a legal framework, and partner more effectively with attorneys, when needed.
