The Legal Studies - Arts and Sciences transfer program offers a broad perspective of the legal system: legal procedures; evidence; investigation; litigation; legal research; ethics; torts; criminal law; Supreme Court decisions; and analysis of constitutional adjudication in the areas of separation of powers, federalism and economic rights. Students who plan to apply to law schools typically select their major from several areas: Economics, History, Philosophy, or Political Science. By using the online ARTSYS program, students can plan a course of study that will transfer to Pre-Law bachelor’s degree programs at Dickinson College, University of Maryland University College, University of Baltimore, Stevenson University, and many other colleges and universities.
