Starting this fall, the School of Law will begin offering an undergraduate minor.
“The Minor in Law, Jurisprudence, and the State will help UGA undergraduate students understand how the law works, how the law matters and how it can be used to create a career that makes a difference whether they intend to become a lawyer or not,” Hosch Professor Logan E. Sawyer III, the school’s director of undergraduate studies, said.
The minor’s flexible curriculum is specifically designed for UGA undergraduate students by allowing them to integrate their legal studies with other academic interests and courses of study. There are two required courses that will be taught by School of Law faculty – Foundations of American Law and Law, Justice, and the State – while the other three elective courses can be chosen from classes taught by faculty at the law school or other units across the university.
This minor extends the School of Law’s commitment to educating not just the next generation of lawyers, but the next generation of leaders for state and society, according to Dean Peter B. “Bo” Rutledge.
