Why Choose the Legal Studies Minor? - Program Spotlight

Students enrolled in the Legal Studies Minor will be exposed to the practical knowledge necessary to address the legal rights, duties and obligations arising in personal, professional, and business contexts.  This Minor provides students with a solid foundation and understanding of substantive and procedural laws, including constitutional, judicial, legislative, and administrative sources of law.  Through the Legal Studies Minor, students will further develop their applied critical thinking and problem-solving skills as applicable to current legal issues that impact their lives and success in their chosen career.

While Legal Studies Minor students develop skills and knowledge that will help prepare them for success in law school, the Minor is also designed for students who are not considering a career in law, but who want to understand the legal aspects of their chosen fields.  The Legal Studies Minor is a relevant and applicable choice for students from all disciplines.
