M.L.S. Program

Recognizing the growing need for legal skills beyond lawyers, OU Law has built accelerated Master of Legal Studies (M.L.S.) programs for working adults.

OU Law offers four programs that focus on core areas of expertise: Oil, Gas, and Energy Law; Indigenous Peoples Law; International Business Law; and Healthcare Law. Each area is steeped in tradition, both at the OU College of Law and across the University of Oklahoma. These programs are offered online to increase the flexibility and convenience so students from around the world can study at the OU College of Law.

M.L.S. Programs

M.L.S. in Oil, Gas, and Energy Law

OU Law is at the forefront in its offering of legal courses focused on energy and natural resources. With more than 100 years of energy education experience and many energy and natural resources companies headquartered in Oklahoma, the M.L.S. in Oil, Gas, and Energy Law is specifically designed for non-lawyers whose careers demand an understanding of energy-related legal issues.

M.L.S. in Indigenous Peoples Law

Located in the heart of the original Indian Territory, the OU College of Law provides an ideal environment for the study of Native American law and issues concerning indigenous peoples. The M.L.S. in Indigenous Peoples Law builds on the American Indian Law Certificate offered to juris doctor students, but has been specifically designed by the OU Law faculty for non-lawyers whose careers demand an understanding of the complex rules of Federal Indian law.

M.L.S. in Healthcare Law

OU Law is leading in its offering of legal courses focused on healthcare law. With more than 4,000 students enrolled in healthcare programs across the University of Oklahoma, the OU College of Law has continued to strengthen its position in healthcare. The M.L.S. in Healthcare Law is specifically designed for non-lawyers whose careers demand an understanding of healthcare-related legal issues.

M.L.S. in International Business Law

The M.L.S. in International Business Law program provides non-lawyers an opportunity to learn about laws, regulations, and processes that impact global commerce. This insight will allow graduates to work closely with attorneys to shape documents and procedures to drive global growth and business expansion.
