Legal Studies

The primary goal of the legal studies minor is to foster a critical understanding of the law within its various contexts. To this end, we bring diverse disciplinary perspectives to bear on a range of topics such as historical and philosophical foundations of law, models of fairness, the evolution of disputes and their resolutions, law and morality, crime and punishment, and rights and responsibilities of individuals and social institutions. Students with varied interests, not only those planning to attend law school, will find the legal studies minor challenging and satisfying.
