This pre-law program allows you to gain knowledge and insight into the building blocks of the American legal system and refine critical thinking and analytical skills. The Associate of Arts degree (A.A.) provides a law and liberal arts foundation for you to transfer to a four-year college or university, such as the University of Baltimore, to pursue a bachelor's degree in jurisprudence and, ultimately, attend law school.
Students who have already selected a transfer college/university should consult with the Director of the Legal Studies Institute to plan their course sequence and keep abreast of program changes and updates to any applicable articulation agreements.
