The Legal Studies Program offers a robust selection of courses each semester and during summer session. The Program also offers special topics courses each semester under LS 190 in a seminar setting based on the research interests of the faculty. The ‘Areas’ for the 190 seminars are noted in the ‘Course Offerings’ section of this website.
Each of the classes is marked with a Roman numeral to indicate the subfield to which it belongs. Some courses are listed in more than one sub-field, but can only be used to satisfy one sub-field (not more than one). All courses taken for the major must be taken for a letter grade.
LS 190 Seminars – These are upper division courses that do not have discussion sections or GSIs. Seminars are designed to be smaller in size and involve more discussion. LS 190’s count towards the Distribution requirements. Because we recycle the numbers every semester, check under ‘Course Offerings’ for the semester in which you are taking the course to find which Area(s) it falls under.
NOTE: Students are required to follow the New Plan.
Information regarding the Old Plan remains on the website for the students who declared prior to the changes and have not yet graduated.
