Minor in Legal Studies

The Legal Studies minor helps students to understand the nature of law and its role and functions from different disciplinary perspectives. Students must complete 18 hours from the list of courses below.

Note: Prerequisites for these courses may increase the total number of hours.

Courses must be selected from at least three different disciplines and no more than 9 hours can come from any one discipline. Appropriate special topics courses may be substituted with the approval of the director of Legal Studies. Students should understand that the minor is not intended as a pre-law program or as a preparation for law school. Students must earn a minimum 2.00 grade-point-average on all minor courses taken at UNC Asheville. One-half of the hours required for a minor must be completed at UNC Asheville, to include at least 6 semester hours of 300-400 level courses.
