Legal Studies Minor

Return to College of General Studies Return to: College of General Studies

In Fall 2022, the Legal Studies Minor was terminated. Students pursuing the Legal Studies Minor will have until Summer 2028 to complete the program requirements. If you are not yet a minor but wish to pursue a similar course of study, then the new Law, Criminal Justice, and Society (LCJS) Minor  is likely to be a good fit for you.

Current Pitt students interested in a CGS minor, rather than a major, in legal studies should declare the minor by completing the CGS minor/certificate declaration form online. If you are a CGS student interested in adding this minor, please contact your CGS advisor.

Minor requirements:

For the minor, students must complete five courses (15 credits) with at least three courses from the University of Pittsburgh. A 2.0 average is required in the minor. Courses used for a minor cannot overlap with courses used for a major, minor, or a certificate.


Important: Changes to LEGLST Courses

Beginning Spring 2022 (2224), Legal Studies and Administration of Justice courses have been renumbered and retitled with LCJS as their subject code. These courses count the same as their former LEGLST or ADMJ equivalent for Legal Studies majors and minors.
