Law and Justice Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Departments

Offered by Political Science .

The Law and Justice minor allows students to develop an expertise in the law, and in how lawyers, courts and judges influence the world.  We offer a wide variety of classes in American, comparative, and international law.  In addition, the minor features classes that examine the struggle for justice as well as the theoretical foundations of law and justice.  The minor is excellent training for students who plan to attend law school, or to work in the many fields where knowledge of the law is a powerful asset.  An understanding of law and justice is valuable for students working in politics, business, the arts, science, technology, and engineering.  The minor offers students hands-on practical opportunities through legal internships, mock trial, moot court, and legal advocacy.
