100% Online Versus Hybrid Master of Legal Studies (MLS) Programs
While most of the Online Master of Legal Studies schools we feature offer a 100% online curriculum, some require limited campus visits for special events or residencies. These programs, called “hybrid” programs, can add an exciting in-person element to an MLS program, allowing students to build professional connections and receive hands-on support. Students who are a considerable distance from the school, however, may find the visit requirements of hybrid programs to be prohibitively costly, both in time and money. Ultimately, students should weigh the costs and benefits of a hybrid or online program before applying.
