Master of Studies in Law (MSL)

The following information about the Master of Studies in Law (MSL) was provided by the Wake Forest University School of Law

The Master of Studies in Law is for working professionals who need to navigate the law, not practice it. Learn to navigate the law in today’s heavily-regulated environment and become invaluable in your workplace. Master of Studies in Law (MSL) students can earn a Master’s Degree or Graduate Certificate in a part-time, fully online asynchronous environment. Currently offering tracks designed for Health Law & Policy and Human Resources professionals, we will also introduce a Business Law and Compliance track for January 2018.

The online Wake Forest University MSL program, taught by School of Law full-time faculty in collaboration with industry experts, allows our students flexibility to work on weekly assignments at their convenience. The custom-designed courses are relevant to today’s legal challenges and beyond, providing students opportunity to add immediate value to the workplace and their lives.

The program actively embraces the values Wake Forest University families have come to expect: a culture of in-depth student/faculty engagement, strong community and a personalized student experience. Applications are accepted for three convenient starts a year. Contact us today for more information about Wake Forest University’s online MSL or visit

If Your Student Has a Problem

One of the most important ways parents and families can help their students in college is by encouraging them to solve their own problems. Please bookmark or print out this Stop, Drop, and Roll flyer so you have it when your student contacts you with a problem.  Also, the flyer lists contact information for urgent and serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
