Legal Studies Minor
The Legal Studies Minor is unique!
The Legal Studies minor is unique - students automatically earn a Certificate in Paralegal Studies - making them job ready upon graduation to start careers in law or law-related fields or continue on to law school.
All undergraduate majors can benefit from a paralegal studies certificate. The skills learned in the Paralegal Studies program also prepare students for careers in related professions.
The legal studies minor allows the student to earn a certificate in paralegal studies while completing the requirements of the minor. The same credits apply to two separate educational achievements:
- Your minor
- Your paralegal studies certificate
The Minor is earned upon completion of 21 credits.
Four required courses (10 credits):
- LGL 103: Introduction to Legal Studies
- LGL 301: Legal Research and Writing
- LGL 201: Professional Responsibility in the Law
- LGL 302: Litigation
Plus 11 credits from additional courses.
