Legal Studies will be available as a minor beginning Spring 2017. Legal Studies is an interdisciplinary approach to the study of law and society and business. The purpose of the Legal Studies minor is to enhance a liberal arts education across traditional disciplines, focusing on the theory and operation of law and legal institutions. The courses in the Legal Studies minor will expose students to the many facets of law as a social phenomenon – its evolution, function, motivating ideas and effects. In addition to fostering critical thinking and other transferable skills, the broad base of knowledge about law-related topics that students acquire in this minor better positions them for employment in governmental and nonprofit agencies, as well as business, where legal knowledge is beneficial.
