Legal Studies

Fox School of Business and Management
At Ambler:

The Legal Studies curriculum is designed to acquaint students with the broad spectrum of the economic, political, and sociological framework within which the law functions. It also may be pursued as a pre-law major in preparation for law school. Majors will be exposed to a curriculum that will challenge their thinking process and reasoning abilities through the use of actual court cases, trial simulations, negotiations and other advocacy skills that stress written and oral communication. All faculty are law trained, and the courses offer an interesting blend of theory and practice.

Students pursuing this curriculum in preparation for the study of law should acquaint themselves with the content and format of the Law School Admissions Test. Visit the Legal Studies web site for information about the test and the Law School admissions process.

Legal Studies majors are encouraged to become involved in Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity, International. This organization hosts guest speakers, sponsors law-related field trips, and assists students in gaining internships within the legal field.
