Over the past 10 years, admission to law school has become increasingly competitive. Law school admissions committees are most interested in students who possess well-developed skills in expression and comprehension of the English language, as well as the ability to think creatively and critically with thoroughness and intellectual curiosity. The minor in legal studies in business focuses specifically on these areas. The minor meets the needs of both business and non-business majors through a unique, interdisciplinary approach and prepares you for law school admission.
