The Legal Studies in Business major provides exceptional preparation either for law school or for a career that requires a legal background, such as careers in human resources, insurance, real estate, government, contract negotiations, and global operations. Students become familiar with legal concepts and terminology, utilize legal research techniques, and practice legal writing. As a result, students are better equipped to confront the challenges of law school or a career that blends business and legal knowledge. Course offerings explore the intersections of law and business in human resources, real estate, sports and entertainment, insurance, finance, contracts, e-commerce, business taxation and global operations. Students also have the option to add a specialization in Energy or Entrepreneurship.
