A number of the liberal arts disciplines in the College of Arts and Science provide important perspectives on law and the legal profession. The Law and Society minor, administered by the Department of Sociology, offers undergraduates a meaningful cluster of these courses. The requirement of five courses allows this interdisciplinary minor to be substantial; the inclusion of a core course enhances its coherence. In addition, the minor gives capable and ambitious students attractive opportunities to pursue advanced or specialized study. While Pre-Law students may well wish to take it, this minor is not aimed specifically at them.

Students wishing to declare this minor should see Jamie Lloyd, Student Services Administrator for the Department of Sociology, 295 Lafayette Street, Room 4168.
