About the Minor in Legal Studies

Whatever your career path, understanding the law, and your impact as a citizen in helping shape those laws, is a fundamental part of life. A minor in Legal Studies will give you better grounding in the history and concepts behind the kinds of legal disputes that dominate the news.

“The legal Studies minor was interesting to me because I wanted to learn about the U.S judicial system and if the structure worked. I also realized that we have a lot more power to shape a new narrative on interpreting laws and move one step closer to justice. As time goes on, the judicial system has evolved and can still change for the better.”
