Minor in Law
About the Minor in Law
Kline’s undergraduate minor in Law provides undergraduate students with the opportunity to explore the American legal system through a rigorous, intellectual, multidisciplinary approach.
Students will learn how legal rules interact with and impact every aspect of society, and will develop the skills to evaluate how those rules shape political, economic and social structures in the U.S. and the world.
Students will become skilled in critical reading, writing, and thinking, and will learn the basics of legal research and analysis. A minor in Law is a great way to prepare for careers in fields subject to legal rules and regulations: whether in business, engineering, health care, or policy-making. Students will be exposed to law in a variety of fields and settings and be asked to think about how law intersects with other cultural forces to shape beliefs, practices and communities. As such, the minor also helps prepare students to be informed and engaged citizens in their communities.
The Minor in Law is designed to be flexible and should be easy to accommodate in most majors. Students in the program take two required courses (Law 101: Law & Society and Law 110: American Legal Systems), and then choose 16 credits of electives. The choice of electives allows students to tailor the minor for a closer focus on law in their major area of interest or study.
