This major closely examines the way laws are created and implemented to encourage ethical legal practices that create a socially just society. Additional coursework in political science, sociology, and philosophy is strongly encouraged.

Students in our program possess a keen interest in closely examining the social, political, and historical processes of law. By studying with practicing lawyers, transfer students learn about the ways legal concepts and theories frame our judicial system. Students learn how to conduct and analyze legal research, deliver persuasive oral arguments, and create well-crafted written documents.

This major is also offered at the Rockland Community College extension site.
