The UC Law SF MSL is designed for individuals who do not seek to practice law, but who instead want to equip themselves with a more sophisticated understanding of legal reasoning and doctrine.

Professionals in most fields increasingly interact with attorneys and participate in legal processes. Yet, most people have little training in the language and structures of the law. An MSL degree will not only help you further your own career and magnify your impact with a deep understanding of legal reasoning and doctrine, but it will also give you the tools to help make your organization more competitive.

The MSL degree can be completed in one-year or part-time over 1-1/2 to 4 years. The MSL program provides the flexibility of two learning modes: fully online and hybrid-flexible.
