Pre-Law Studies Minor

This course of study is designed to introduce students to the interdisciplinary nature of law and the legal profession. This minor favors no specific major field, but draws on courses with the substantive content and study skills which are recommended by the American Bar Association as especially desirable for prospective law students.

An introductory course, IDS 260, will analyze the complex of substantive areas encompassed by the legal profession and the problematic trend toward using legal professionals for all levels of problem solving. Other courses are drawn from business, economics, history, philosophy, political science, sociology, psychology, and sport and movement science.

The pre-law studies minor is open to all students. Students will take IDS 260, introduction to pre-law studies, and choose five courses from an approved list.
