Residential Institute

The Legal Studies major is an interdisciplinary major that incorporates a variety of subjects and professors from different disciplines such as philosophy, history, and law.

In contrast to a traditional pre-law program, we offer a wide ranging program that readies a student for not only the rigors of law school, but other graduate study too. Every year we offer a free three-part seminar on getting into law school.

In addition, the Legal Studies program provides opportunities to get an internship garnering real-world experience for credit, and a two-track program that allows students to focus on either international or American legal ideas and concepts, along with a host of electives to improve that understanding.

Professors are regularly offering new classes and new opportunities to enhance the major. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
