Cleveland Marshall offers online MLS in cybersecurity


Cleveland-Marshall College of Law at Cleveland State University has launched a fully online Master of Legal Studies (MLS) in Cybersecurity and Data Privacy that is designed for professionals who need to understand the significant legal and business risks posed by cybersecurity, data security and data privacy. 

The online MLS is the latest offering in Cleveland-Marshall’s legal technology program. The Center for Cybersecurity and Privacy Protection at Cleveland-Marshall was established in 2016 and has earned national recognition for its innovative approach that integrates law, business, technology and managerial approaches to address cybersecurity and privacy risks. Each year the Center hosts a national conference that convenes leaders from government, business, technology and law to address multidisciplinary strategic approaches to addressing cyber and privacy issues.

“We realized there was a critical need for technologists and business executives to better understand the legal and strategic dimensions of effective cybersecurity,” said Professor Brian Ray, who directs the school's Center for Cybersecurity and Privacy Protection, “Students in this program will not only receive the high quality, innovative curriculum, but also have access to a professional network we’ve spent years building.”

Students may complete the required 30-credit hour program through either full or part time study. More information and online application is available at or by calling 216-687-2328.
