Legal Studies, Minor
The Legal Studies Minor is an interdisciplinary program with a liberal arts focus that provides students with the opportunity to study the law, legal ideas/concepts, and legal systems/processes from a variety of perspectives. The minor is designed to provide a broad conceptual framework to explore legal studies and complement a chosen major of study. While the minor may be appropriate for those considering attending law schools, it is not a “pre-law” program and does not provide legal or paralegal training.
