Students who are interested in law school may wish to minor in legal studies. The legal studies minor provides students with an interdisciplinary approach to the study of law. Students may tailor the minor for a greater focus on the law in a particular area of interest. However, the legal studies minor is not intended to prepare a student for a career as a paralegal and is not approved by the American Bar Association.
Requirements for a Minor
Students minoring in legal studies must complete 21 hours of course work. Required courses include:
Students majoring in political science and minoring in legal studies may not count PS courses toward both the major and the minor. Students majoring in paralegal studies are not eligible for a minor in legal studies.
