Legal Studies provides an introduction to legal ideas, legal institutions, and the legal process, with the aim of developing in its students the ability to think clearly and analyze arguments and claims critically.
The Legal studies major is not a pre-law program; it was not designed to prepare students for admission to law schools or for work in the legal profession, and it does not provide paralegal training.
