Legal Studies is an interdisciplinary approach to the study of law and society and business. The Minor in Legal Studies enhances a liberal arts education across traditional disciplines, focusing on the theory and operation of law and legal institutions. The courses in the Minor in Legal Studies expose students to the many facets of law as a social phenomenon - its evolution, function, motivating ideas, and effects. In addition to fostering critical thinking and other transferable skills, the broad base of knowledge about law-related topics that students acquire in this minor better positions them for employment in governmental and nonprofit agencies, as well as business, in which legal knowledge is beneficial.
All program-level Admissions and Progression Requirements are in addition to the University of North Carolina at Charlotte Admission Requirements.
