About the Program
Legal Studies (LGST)
The Legal Studies minor at Winthrop University is a multi-disciplinary program that encourages an exploration of law and its influence on society and provides students with an understanding of how a variety of disciplines treat questions of law, compliance, and justice.
This minor gives students a broad understanding of the legal environment in which we live and empowers individuals to participate in societies governed by the rule of law by promoting a consciousness and understanding of legal culture and institutions.
The Legal Studies curriculum will challenge students to ready themselves for a just and independent role in the shared governance of democratic society by exploring aspects of legal systems through a variety of disciplinary perspectives.
