The Legal Studies Department operates as the center of law-related education and extra-curricular opportunities for undergraduates and post-baccalaureate paralegal students at Hamline.
The department offers the legal studies major, the legal studies minor, an ABA-approved paralegal certificate, the Law School Early Admission (LSEA) program, and the opportunity to compete on a nationally competitive mock trial team.
In addition, while those students interested in law school may choose any major to prepare for law school, the Legal Studies Department provides support and advising for students interested in exploring graduate study in law.Hamline’s Legal Studies professors are experienced teachers, scholars, and practitioners of the law. Dedicated full-time department faculty teach courses, develop curriculum, advise students, research and write about legal issues, and support adjunct faculty. Students experience the true rigors of a practical legal education as well as the personal attention and wide breadth of learning offered by a liberal arts institution.
With a law school on campus, Hamline provides undergraduate and post-baccalaureate students with access to a first-class research law library, and networking and internship opportunities with judges, state government, and law firms. The Department also offers study-abroad opportunities in law-related courses.
