Electives

Each quarter Legal Studies approves courses taught throughout the University as electives that will count towards our major, adjunct major, and minor. Please see below for the list of classes approved for the current academic year.

Note: If a course listed here is an approved course for another major or minor you're pursuing, be sure to consult the double-counting rules: Weinberg College double-counting rules, and Double-counting for non-Weinberg students.
