Law Minor

The Law minor emphasizes the study of legal cases and systems and is intended for both business and non-business students who wish additional concentrated study in law. Students may begin their studies with LAW 150 Business Law I .  The courses offered in this minor help students to develop rigorous critical thinking and advanced communication skills. Admission to law school generally requires a high grade point average, as well as satisfactory performance on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). While law schools usually do not prescribe any one particular undergraduate course of study for admission, students should obtain information on the specific admission requirements for the schools that they plan to attend. Legal Studies faculty members are available to advise students considering a legal career.
