Law and Business
The Law and Business curriculum is designed to acquaint the student with the broad spectrum of the economic, political, and sociological framework within which the law functions. It also may be pursued as a pre-law major in preparation for law school. Majors will be exposed to a curriculum that will challenge their thinking process and reasoning abilities through the use of actual court cases, trial simulations, negotiations and other advocacy skills that stress written and oral communication. All faculty are law trained, and the courses offer an interesting blend of theory and practice.
Student pursuing this curriculum in preparation for the study of law should acquaint themselves with the content and format of the Law School Admissions Test. Information about the test and the Law School admission’s process may be accessed by visiting our website.
Law and Business majors are encouraged to become involved in Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity, International. This organization hosts guest speakers, sponsors law related field trips, and assists students in gaining internships within the legal field.
