Earn your Master of Science in Legal Administration Degree!

We invite you to discover how the Sturm College of Law in Denver, Colorado can prepare you for a successful career in legal management. While we offer a variety of degrees and certificate programs in law and legal related fields, we’d like to acquaint you with our Master of Science in Legal Administration (MSLA) degree which is a blend of business and law and offers flexibility for traditional and non-traditional students.

Since 1972, the Master of Science in Legal Administration Program (MSLA) (formerly, Master of Science in Judicial Administration) has been educating students on the management and operations of law firms, courts, and legal organizations. The MSLA degree provides students with the business knowledge and skills to run a law firm, court, or legal organization, both nationally and internationally.

To accommodate the needs of our students, all courses are available online. Students may attend full-time, and graduate in one year; or part-time, and graduate in two to four years. Our students come from diverse backgrounds and have varying interests: some are working professionals, while others are students interested in entering the field of legal administration.

The mission of the MSLA program at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law is to improve the quality of justice worldwide through the education and training of the profession that manages, operates, and leads courts, law firms, and legal organizations. To this end, we offer the following online programs:


"The MSLA program provides students with a unique opportunity to learn about the inner workings of courts and law firms from a management perspective. I am thrilled to be in a program that combines my business administration background with my interest in the legal field. The coursework and experiential learning provide a solid foundation for successful future careers in legal administration. MSLA professors are both intelligent and accessible, and I am very pleased with their efforts to help integrate us into the legal administration field. I believe the MSLA program has prepared me well for my future career, and I encourage anyone with interests in business and law to consider this degree program."
