EMU pre-law students learn to understand and articulate contending positions – a skill necessary for working with legal systems in our diverse world – here on campus or in another culture. Professors and students approach law through interdisciplinary, multi-cultural and cross-border knowledge and experiences.
Through an internship and courses in logic, ethics, human rights, political studies, theology, business, restorative justice, peacebuilding and development, and applied sociology, you will examine the impact of socio-legal systems on life in this country and around the globe.
