Department of Law : American Legal Studies

American Legal Studies (Class of 2014 and prior)
The major in American Legal Studies provides cadets with a solid basis for understanding both discrete legal disciplines within the U.S. legal system and the relationships of these disciplines with each other in creating a just and effective rule of law society. This major promotes the development of critical thinking through the use of legal analysis applied across different areas of the law, and sharpens cadets' ability to integrate and evaluate higher levels of theoretical thinking.
