Overview

Modern managers face increasing legal implications in daily operations and in formulating business policy. Consequently, effective decision-making requires an appreciation of the social, ethical, economic, and political bases of law as it relates to business.

A flexible, inherently cross-disciplinary course of study, the Legal Studies major at University of Miami can facilitate careers in such fields as risk management, compliance, human resources, marketing, finance and accounting, general business or non-profit management, health care, government, and small business ownership/entrepreneurship. For some, it may also provide an appropriate foundation for the professional study of law.
