Legal Studies

Modern managers face increasing legal implications in daily operations and in formulating business policy. Consequently, effective decision-making requires an appreciation of the social, ethical, economic, and political bases of law as it relates to business.

The legal studies major enhances the interaction between legal counsel and the business manager, preparing graduates to excel in a wide variety of business pursuits. A flexible, inherently cross-disciplinary course of study, the Legal Studies major can facilitate careers in such fields as risk management, compliance, human resources, marketing, finance and accounting, general business or non-profit management, health care, government, and small business ownership/entrepreneurship. For some, it may also provide an appropriate foundation for the professional study of law.
