The General Legal Studies curriculum reflects the rigor and quality that ABA requires and legal employers demand. Students will develop core skills such as legal research, writing, and analysis, along with law office technology and other practical aspects of the legal profession. The program culminates in a practicum course that combines an in-office internship and classroom component focused on career skills and networking.
