Electives

Each quarter Legal Studies approves courses taught throughout the University as electives that will count towards the major and minor requirements.


See below for the list of approved classes for the current academic year.

 

Elective Lists

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 .

Being listed as an approved Legal Studies elective does not come with enrollment permissions for Legal Studies students. Some department's courses have prerequisites or are closed to non-majors. CAESAR will detail any such restrictions.

Elective Petition

If you believe that a class not included in our lists has sufficient legal content and should be considered as a Legal Studies elective, please complete the above petition for elective credit. Submit the completed form and the course syllabus to our Program Assistant (legalstudies@northwestern.edu); the petition will then undergo review by the Director of Undergraduate Studies. Petitions should be submitted during the quarter the student is enrolled in the course and are considered on a case-by-case basis.
