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.

This pre-professional program draws on courses from political science, sociology, anthropology and philosophy, making you the kind of well-rounded student that law schools and employers seek.

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.


Gain invaluable real-world experience as you take an up-close look at the criminal justice system with the help of our Arlin M. Adams Center for Law and Society.

The center helps students land internships and do field research that impacts law enforcement both locally and throughout the country.
