START FAST…FINISH STRONG
The goal of the Bachelor of Arts in Law program is to prepare graduates to advance to law school or pursue other career opportunities requiring a solid foundation in law such as paralegals, legal administrative assistants, and legal interns. The program is designed to equip students with the skills necessary to be able to think critically, write competently and persuasively about legal issues, utilize current technology to perform legal research and associated tasks, conduct themselves ethically in their professional and personal lives, and analyze case law. The curriculum consists of core substantive law classes to prepare students for the rigorous legal research and writing they will encounter in the first two years of law school. The curriculum culminates with a Moot Court Trial in which students apply what they have learned.
Upon completion of the program students will be able to:
- Understand both substantive and procedural law.
- Engage in problem solving given applicable statutory law, case law,
administrative law and regulations.
- Exercise proper professional and ethical responsibilities to clients
and the legal system.
- Conduct legal research to analyze legal issues.
- Demonstrate effective written and oral communication skills.
