Introduction

The Legal Studies Program is an interdisciplinary field of study composed of law courses from: the departments of criminal justice, political science, history and sociology; and the schools of business, education, and engineering.

Why Saint Martin's University?

Saint Martin's offers a minor in legal studies as a complement to such degree programs as criminal justice, political science and psychology. As part of the minor, students interested in law school will benefit from counseling and guidance from a pre-law advisor.

The rigor of the Legal Studies Program at Saint Martin’s provides students with an experience comparable to the first year of law school. 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

Research and Internships

Legal studies participants may:

  • Intern in public or private law offices
  • Pursue independent study on legal topics of interest
  • Elect to write a senior capstone on legal issues through a related major in criminal justice, sociology, social work, psychology, history, or political science.
