The Legal Studies Program was great, and definitely gave me the skills I needed to find jobs, and will help me in my path to law school. The internships required for the Legal Studies degree gave me the opportunity to intern with the CT General Assembly my sophomore year, and with the Bucks County Probation and Parole Department. I owe my credentials to the phenomenal education I received from the Legal Studies Department, and to the law professors who go out of their way to guide students in the legal field.
