Minor in Legal Studies

The legal studies minor is open to students from any major. It is appropriate for students who have a general interest in law or for students considering law school or other graduate study in law. It is also appropriate for students who are pursuing a career that has a significant connection to law and legal matters and who wish to deepen their understanding of the legal system. The legal studies minor is not intended to prepare students to work as paralegals and it is not approved by the American Bar Association. Students intending to work as paralegals should choose the legal studies major.

In the past five years, 30 students have graduated with a minor in Legal Studies. These students had 14 different majors, including Accounting, Allied Health Sciences, Classics, Communication Studies, Criminal Justice, English, Finance, Management, Marketing, Political Science, Psychology, Public & Nonprofit Administration, Social Work, and Women and Gender Studies.
