Overview

While no specific major is prescribed for admission to law school, many pre-law students elect to major in Legal Studies.  

Learning outcomes

The Legal Studies Program from University of West Florida, in addition to preparing students for law-related careers, provides a foundation for law school or other graduate education. All of the full-time Legal Studies faculty are attorneys who are graduates of ABA-Approved law schools and are available for law school advising.  

Legal Studies students are encouraged to work closely with Legal Studies Advisors in planning their programs.  Satisfactory completion of program requirements leads to the degree of Bachelor of Arts with a major in Legal Studies.
