The minor in Legal Thought and Liberal Arts is designed to provide an interdisciplinary liberal arts program for students in any major who intend to enter the legal profession. The minor will be of particular benefit to pre-law students whose majors are more professional in nature and who are not exposed to the broader liberal arts curriculum. Students will be introduced to major intellectual traditions of the West and to ethical, social, and economic issues of significance to our time. The courses in the minor require that students read critically, think logically, and write clearly - attributes required of persons in the legal profession.
