Legal Studies Program

The Legal Studies concentration teaches theoretical and practical aspects of the field of law as a profession. Students are equipped to offer substantive paralegal services to firms and agencies or to continue their education in law school. The core curriculum emphasizes four correlated disciplines: (1) theory, process, application, and ethics of law; (2) legal and administrative research and investigation; (3) law-related technologies, and (4) professional decorum and communication skills. Only licensed attorneys are permitted to practice law, but well-trained paralegals and support staff are indispensable to any office that faces critical issues in law, regulatory compliance, or policy. The unique skill sets of Legal Studies graduates are vital not only to law firms but also to corporations, government agencies, courts, law enforcement, health care organizations, non-profits, educational institutions, and a wide range of other professional settings.
