The Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University offers an alternative, conditional path to admission into the JD program: the Master of Legal Studies Honors (MLS-H) program. The MLS-H program is designed to give students with strong credentials who were not offered a spot in the JD class an opportunity to prove they belong at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law. Applicants selected for this program have an opportunity to gain admission to the JD program beginning in spring 2024 through their successful completion of the MLS-H program in fall 2023.
All JD applicants are considered for admission to the MLS-H program and no separate application is necessary. The information included in the JD application will be used by the admissions committee to determine which students will be invited to the MLS-H program. Invitations to the MLS-H program are made at the discretion of the admissions committee.
