The MSL is based on the assumption that engineers, nurses, scientists and other subject matter specialists can use legal and regulatory knowledge to help their organizations gain a competitive advantage. The MSL will give them the legal training they need, increasing their skill and depth.

A new way to enhance your career.

The Master of Science in Law (MSL) is a new degree for professionals who want to know more about the intersection of law and regulation with the technical, scientific or administrative demands of their chosen fields.

The MSL’s curriculum was developed exclusively for this degree; it is new and robust. In addition to classes and seminars, students will pursue practical projects directly related to challenges they are likely to encounter in their professions under the guidance of distinguished practitioners.

The MSL has been approved by the Maryland Higher Education Commission and the University System of Maryland. 

Specialized education.

The MSL is a part-time, 30-credit, two-year, evening program intended to be completed in four semesters at the University of Maryland, College Park.  Students must choose one of five specializations.

  • Crisis Management: Prepares students to lead their institutions in responding to natural and man-made disasters.
  • Cybersecurity: Explores this vital field with an emphasis on its legal and public policy dimensions.
  • Environmental Law: Focuses on the issues addressed by environmental laws and the mechanisms and administrative agencies through which they’re enforced, both in the US and abroad.
  • Health Care Law: The Affordable Care Act, HIPAA, Medicaid fraud, privacy and revenue cycle management are among the topics to be covered.
  • Patent Law: Offers grounding in a range of intellectual property issues needed to work successfully with patents or prepare to become a registered patent agent.

Invest in your future. Without breaking the bank.

The estimated cost of the MSL is $22,500 (or $750 per credit hour) for the full 30-credit, two-year program. This proposed tuition is pending approval by the University System of Maryland Board of Regents and will be finalized in April, 2015

The application deadline is June 30 for classes beginning in fall 2015. The application form and related instructions are here. If you have questions not answered on this website, please contact us at MSL@law.umaryland.edu or at 410.706.4114.
