Prepare for Law School
The legal studies minor gives students the benefit of a multi-disciplinary minor with rigorous courses intended to improve their ability to get into law school and help them to succeed once there. The reason for this is that not only do law schools consider undergraduate GPA in admission decisions—they also consider the quality of the undergraduate courses taken by a candidate. The minor in legal studies is available to any student in any major who is considering law school upon graduation from A&M-Commerce.
If you are a current undergraduate student pursuing any major at A&M-Commerce, you can easily add this minor to your course of study.
The program consists of 18 semester credit hours spread across four content areas with most of the courses at the junior or senior-level (300/400).
