The Legal Studies minor provides students with the broad conceptual
framework of legal studies and encourages them to explore the law from an
interdisciplinary perspective. Founded in 1989, the Legal Studies Program was
approved as a minor in 1991. The program provides students with an
interdisciplinary approach to the study of law. The law is central to theories
and research in philosophy, social science, business, and public policy. The
University of Delaware offers law-related courses in a wide variety of programs
and disciplines. You can learn about law and the legal system in courses in
accounting, communication, criminal justice, economics, history, philosophy,
political science, psychology, sociology, and women's studies. Faculty in the
program are drawn from six of the seven colleges of the University.
The Legal Studies Minor is designed for any undergraduate student who is
interested in examining the law and legal institutions from a wide variety of
perspectives. Although Legal Studies is not a "Pre-Law" program and
does not provide legal or paralegal training of the sort that a student would
obtain at a law school or paralegal training institute, the Legal Studies minor
should be of interest to students who plan to obtain professional training in
law-related fields after graduation.
The Legal Studies Minor provides a substantive introduction to law, an
interdisciplinary introduction to legal studies, as well as, offering electives
from a range of disciplinary perspectives.
