The rule of law is a concept vital to any understanding of the world in which we live. The Legal Studies Minor is thus intended to meet the needs of all students who have an interest in the subject, regardless of their major, as well as serving the interests of students who have plans to attend law school after graduation.

The Political Science Department also provides Legal Studies Minors extensive guidance with the law school application process, from application and LSAT preparation support to advice about which law school may be the best fit. If law school is your goal, the Legal Studies minor will set you on the right path.
