UMass Lowell offers a Legal Studies minor and a paralegal certificate for students considering law school or who want to learn more about the legal system. The program is taught by the law faculty of the Legal Studies Program within the School of Criminology and Justice Studies. The faculty also serves as pre-law advisors for university students.
The Legal Studies minor provides students with a broad conceptual framework of legal studies and an opportunity to explore the law in an interdisciplinary perspective. We offer law courses in a wide variety of topics to compliment your academic program of study.
