Q: For non-lawyers, what is the importance of having a background in Indian law?
A: Knowledge of Indian law benefits anyone doing business, or aspiring to do business, with tribal organizations. The new Master of Legal Studies program in Indian law at OU Law provides flexible study through online courses and can be completed in just two years of part-time study. This innovative program is broad and interdisciplinary, but students will have the opportunity to refine their specialty further by choosing advanced courses relevant to their interests. The program is advised by a board of nationally and internationally renowned leaders, scholars, and practitioners whose oversight, combined with faculty experience, promotes an effective balance between deep theory and practical application.
