Minor in Legal Studies/Pre-Law

The Legal Studies/Pre-Law minor gives students the opportunity to study law, legal reasoning, constitutional analysis, political theory, and the principles of legal thought and decision-making. This minor also emphasizes analytical and communication skills that are crucial for success in law school and the legal profession, graduate school, and international business. The minor is popular with students who plan to attend law school, but it is open to everyone. We encourage all students interested in law and the legal system to consider adding a Legal Studies minor to their degree.
