The Legal Studies Minor

Image Picker for Section 0


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.
