The Legal Studies program at Manhattanville University has courses that are small (generally ranging in size from 10 to 12 in a seminar or 20 to 30 in a 2000-level course). This small size facilitates in-class discussion and permits the students ample opportunity to work closely with the professors, all of whom are distinguished scholars or practitioners of law.
Students learn to read difficult legal material, including cases and statutes, as well as works of history and philosophy. Students also learn to write legal briefs, analyze complex arguments, and write effective and persuasive essays. There are in-class oral arguments and mock trial exercises which give the students a chance to simulate the roles of judges, jurors, witnesses, and attorneys in the daily practice of law.
The program provides a superb preparation for law school and for participation in any law-related profession or graduate education. The writing and oral communication skills developed can also be of use to graduating students in a variety of fields, from government to business and beyond. Students in the program also have the opportunity to do an internship in a legal field.
