Program Description

Master of Legal Studies in Indigenous Peoples Law

The University of Oklahoma - College of Law

The Master of Legal Studies (MLS) Program at OU Law extends the school’s longstanding history of excellence and expertise in indigenous peoples law and energy and natural resources law. This master’s degree allows students seeking a legal knowledge in indigenous peoples law to gain that knowledge in less time than the three years of full-time study required to earn a Juris Doctor degree. MASTER OF LEGAL STUDIES IN INDIGENOUS PEOPLES LAW (ONLINE) Located in the heart of the original Indian Territory, OU Law provides an ideal environment for the study of Native American law and issues concerning indigenous peoples. Oklahoma contains nearly forty tribal nations and the second largest Native American population in the United States. Given their presence and the history of the region, Indian law affects virtually all areas of legal practice, making it a vibrant and growing field. The MLS in Indigenous Peoples law can be completed online in two years of part-time study. ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS To qualify for admission to the Master of Legal Studies program, applicants must have earned their bachelor’s degree prior to matriculation. In addition to having an undergraduate degree, those admitted must have strong letters of recommendation and leadership potential. Applicants are urged to submit their application and supporting documents as soon as possible to receive priority review for August enrollment. ADMISSION DECISIONS The MLS Admissions Committee will carefully examine all parts of the application with plans to announce decisions as soon as possible. The committee operates under a rolling admission process, and admissions may continue until the start of classes. However, international students must file a completed application and all related materials by June 15 to allow sufficient time to secure a student visa for on-campus programs. (Note: this would not apply to students taking the indigenous peoples online courses who have received permission from the MLS director to waive the on-campus introductory course.)
