Legal Studies

Law constitutes one of the fundamental ways in which society is ordered, and the rule of law remains essential to individual and communal flourishing.

Legal education expands, deepens, and sharpens the mind, and it hones skills such as critical thinking, textual interpretation, understanding of the many facets of arguments, respect for the opposing views, dispute resolution, reconciliation, and clear oral and written expression.
