Open Doors to Law Careers
Be ready to succeed in law school or another law-related career in our new legal studies major.
Real-world experience will be yours through a guaranteed, paid internship with our Arlin M. Adams Center for Law and Society. Write briefs in the district attorney’s office, discuss legal opinions with judges and clerks in the county court, represent a child’s interests as a court-appointed advocate and more.
You’ll get a broad-based introduction to the nature and function of the law and our legal system—giving you the freedom to discover if you’d like to continue to law school or pursue a career in a related field like court administration, criminal investigations, public administration or nonprofit work.
Because our bold curriculum is rooted in the liberal arts, you’ll also develop essential skills like writing, teamwork, presentations, critical thinking, interpersonal relationships and leadership.
