Why minor in Legal Studies?
When you take Legal Studies at UND, you'll gain valuable insight into how law encompasses the way we live, work and play. This interdisciplinary program will examine the ideas of law, as well as its institutions and practices. It also supports a liberal arts framework that connects law to different academic methods and theories to help advance your understanding of law and society.
Because you'll be learning about law rather than how to practice law, this minor is a great first step toward law school and a career as a lawyer. It is also suitable for those interested in pursuing careers in legal services, public service and the nonprofit sector. Additionally, those pursuing a career in business administration, political science and academia may also find this minor helpful.
