The Legal Studies Program provides students with a broad understanding of basic principles of law and the role and function of the legal system. While no specific major is prescribed for admission to law school, many pre-law students elect to major in legal studies. The legal studies program, in addition to preparing students for law-related careers, provides a foundation for law school or other graduate education. All of the full time Legal Studies faculty are attorneys who are graduates of ABA approved law schools and are available for law school advising. Pre-law students are encouraged to work closely with legal studies advisors in planning their programs. Satisfactory completion of program requirements leads to the degree of Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science with a major in Legal Studies. Students who complete the Legal Studies degree are eligible to apply for The Florida Bar Registered Paralegal designation or to sit for the national paralegal certification exams.
