Legal Studies

preparing for a presentation
Type of Degree: Minor

This minor enhances your knowledge of the legal system and is meant for students interested in heading to law school. But if you’re just interested in legal issues or how the law affects society, this is a great minor to add.

Combine with political science or criminology.


Why Legal Studies?

From my Legal Studies minor I have learned so much and have loved every law class here that I have decided to apply to law schools in Columbus, Ohio! - Kiera Harper

During his time at Heidelberg, Zachery had three influential internships  - two with the Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court and one with a title agency in Columbus. He attributes these experiences plus the guidance he received from his Heidelberg professors as the keys to getting into The Moritz College of Law at The Ohio State University.
