Dr. Wayne Batchis Director of Legal Studies
I am thrilled to be the Director of Legal Studies! Whether you consider yourself law school bound, or are just testing the waters, seek to have a foundation in law as a valuable resource in another career, or simply wish to attain some understanding of law for your own edification, a legal studies minor is an excellent choice. Law is all around us. It affects our daily lives in innumerable ways. I encourage you to dive in and explore our diverse offerings.
From business law to criminal law, civil liberties to the mass media, we offer substantive courses that would not be out of place in any of the country's major law schools. However, spanning the university, we also offer classes that approach law through the lens of many disciplines.
I encourage you to make the most of your legal studies experience. If you have any questions, or are in need of advising, please contact me or Barbara Ford
firstname.lastname@example.org in the Political Science office.
