Legal Studies Minor

The Legal Studies minor encourages students to study legal institutions, norms and traditions and to analyze how they interact with society, culture, economics, politics and policy.

The program equips students with the ability to comprehend and critically evaluate written arguments, to make one’s own arguments and support them with evidence and logical reasoning, and to communicate effectively, both orally and in writing.
