Legal Studies Minor

The Legal Studies minor is available to student majoring in any discipline. The minor would be particularly beneficial to students majoring in fields closely related or impacted by law such as business, political science, nursing, and communication. Further, it provides a legal foundation for those intending to go to law school. However, the Legal Studies minor is not approved by the American Bar Association and is not intended to prepare students as paralegals.
