Legal Studies Minor


A minor in legal studies does not prepare students to become paralegals, is not an ABA approved program option, and is distinct from the Paralegal Certificate program.  The ABA approved Paralegal Certificate program has specific legal specialty course requirements, while the minor only requires completion of LSTD 1100  Introduction to Legal Concepts plus any five other legal studies (LSTD) courses.  A student who wants to obtain both a minor and Paralegal Certificate, must take a minimum of 27 LSTD credits (9 courses) and fulfill the requirements of both the Paralegal Certificate and a minor, since no more than three courses may overlap.
