Developments in the legal system affect all aspects of our lives, including our work lives, our family lives, and our lives as citizens who participate in the democratic process.
The law also represents a body of ideas and values that have been studied by scholars in a wide variety of fields, including sociology, political science, cultural studies, history, economics, and business. The legal studies concentration provides students with the opportunity to study law from a variety of these perspectives.
Taking courses in this concentration helps you determine if you would like to pursue law school after graduation, but also provides value in financial spheres as well. It provides a broad exposure to legal issues, aiding in your development as future thought-leaders, managers, and citizens.
