Academic Requirements for Graduation
- MSLA students must maintain at least a B (3.0) average for all courses taken at the College of Law. A grade of C shall not be considered a failing grade if an MSLA student maintains an overall B average.
- MSLA classes at the College of Law are mostly small seminar classes making traditional law school grading procedures difficult, such as exam anonymity and grade curves. Thus, there are no such requirements established in the MSLA program.
Academic Progress Reports
- The MSLA program will produce an Academic Progress Report (APR) after each semester which advises the student of their progress in the program: grades, cumulative GPA, and required courses still to be taken.
- Class Attendance is required for all courses. Professors will outline any impact attendance and participation will have on the student’s grade. Poor attendance can be the basis for a failing grade. Students are encouraged to discuss with the professors when they must be away from class.
- A student may initiate a grievance procedure with regard to any grade received at the College of Law if the student believes the grade was unfairly awarded. Students should first consult the professor. If the student finds no resolution, then s/he should file a petition with the Director of the MSLA Program.
- The College of Law has a student services office available to MSLA students. The office is equipped to assist students in any special need. For additional information, please contact the Associate Dean for Student Affairs, 303.871.6208, or contact the Director of the MSLA Program, Hope Kentnor.

MSLA students will have a computer account at our campus computer networks. With this account, you can easily set up remote access for email and internet access. There are several computer labs on campus. Students will receive training on both systems during orientation.

MSLA students will receive passwords to access these educational online tools.
We will no longer be using a job board to house our job postings. Instead, we have created a new MSJA/MSLA Alumni and Faculty Listserv! This listserv is intended to act as a communication tool and bring together MSJA and MSLA alumni and faculty. Please use this list to post job opportunities, locate alumni, and ask/answer questions related to legal administration. If you are an MSJA/MSLA alumnus or faculty member, subscribe to the listserv here.
