The minor designation, an eighteen-credit curriculum drawn from the core courses of our existing J.D. Program, is available to undergraduate students from any major who are interested in deepening their understanding of the legal system.
People in a wide range of careers encounter legal issues on a regular basis. By gaining an understanding of the basic functional areas of law, you will have a competitive advantage in the marketplace, wherever your career takes you.
These and other professionals may not be required to practice in a court of law, but having some familiarity with the law will help them understand the legal requirements imposed upon them and how best to work with legal professionals when the need arises.
Current UB students not enrolled in the Law minor are eligible for admission if they meet the following criteria:
Students may enroll at any time during their undergraduate education, and should be able to complete the minor in two to four years.
A UB student must complete 18 credits in order to earn their Law minor. Classes are taught by full-time law faculty and practicing attorney adjunct instructors, and are primarily day classes.
