Saint Martin's University students may choose to minor in legal studies. As part of the program, students interested in law school will benefit from counseling and guidance from a pre-law advisor.

Legal Studies participants investigate:

  • The interrelationship of law and society
  • The protection of civil liberties
  • The constitutional rules that govern criminal law
  • The regulations and legal principles that operate in the business context
  • Modern laws that protect the environment

Internships and independent study

Legal studies participants may also intern in public or private law offices, pursue independent study on legal topics of interest, and elect to write a senior capstone on legal issues through a related major in criminal justice, sociology, social work, psychology, history, or political science.
