B.A. IN LEGAL STUDIES
Stephens is one of the few undergraduate institutions in the nation to offer a pre-law program. Through a skills-based approach, you will learn to think critically and analytically, necessary skills to do well on the law school admission exam (LSAT).
Take courses that are
based in legal theory, rather than political science. To gain a competitive
advantage when applying to law schools, you will study legal topics
that are covered in the first year of law school.
Legal Studies majors also are equipped with the theoretical and substantive knowledge necessary to succeed in law-related professions.
ACADEMIC PARTNERSHIP—3:3 LAW PROGRAM
A joint program with the neighboring University of Missouri–Columbia (MU) allows you to complete undergraduate coursework in three years and, with the required GPA and LSAT score, earn early admission to MU’s School of Law.
Students earn a bachelor’s degree from Stephens
after the successful completion of the first year of law school. Thus,
you earn a law degree in six years, instead of the typical seven years.
The program is a “succeed-sooner” opportunity for high-caliber, highly motivated students. Stephens’ pre-law adviser helps ensure you are prepared for law school and offers advice on the law school admission process.
The Legal Studies program also offers a minor in LEGAL STUDIES. Click here for a full list of minors.
