Sociolegal Studies Minor

The Sociolegal Studies minor requires six courses. All students will take two required courses:

  • SLGL 200: Introduction to Sociolegal Studies
  • SLGL 201: Elements of Law and Legal Research

Students also will take four elective courses chosen from law-related courses across CAS departments. No more than two (2) elective courses can come from the same department. Students may count one (1) elective toward both the Sociolegal Studies minor and another major or minor. 

There is no required sequence for the courses. Thus, students are not required to take SLGL 200 or SLGL 201 prior to taking other courses toward the minor.
