About this program

BA Law in Society

  • Quinnipiac's Law in Society program combines the classic values of a liberal arts education with the critical thinking, analytical writing and oral presentation skills of the legal profession to prepare graduates who are active and thoughtful citizens in their local and global communities.
  • With our humanities-based approach to the study of law, you will be exposed to different methodologies and distinct approaches to the understanding of law, while learning how the law shapes and is shaped by particular perspectives, historical contexts and actual practice. Our experienced faculty of practicing lawyers and judges teach you how to interpret laws, form arguments and understand a variety of complex legal issues. Additionally, the program's electives allow you to tailor your degree to your career goals. Many graduates attend law school or graduate school, or work as paralegals in law offices. But job prospects don't end at the courtroom or law office. The skills of legal reasoning and critical thinking translate into fields as diverse as policy, mediation, local law enforcement, social services, education and human relations.
  • Your studies expose you to a strong blend of theory and real-world experience. In the internship seminar, taken in your senior year, you will apply your knowledge in a practical environment such as a private law firm, courthouse, nonprofit organization, or even the office of the State's Attorney or Connecticut's Attorney General. As part of the major requirements, students complete a Legal Studies certificate, approved by the American Bar Association.
