UB Law – Undergraduate Courses – Spring Semester 2019

Why study Law Minor at UB?

The Law minor has two basic aims: (1) to introduce students to legal skills and concepts; and (2) to provide a basic understanding of legal institutions and history. Students pursuing the Law minor will learn fundamental concepts in law, including the structure and operation of the United States legal system and its relationship to social and economic institutions. They will also learn to read, understand, and interpret legal texts such as cases, statutes, regulations, and the U.S. Constitution, and will become familiar with the use of legal reasoning and rhetoric, including arguments that draw upon legal authority, doctrine, and evidence.

The law minor complements many undergraduate majors. For some students, the law minor provides a deeper understanding of the role that law, legal theory, and legal institutions play in their major field of study. Students might also use the law minor to acquire knowledge in a specific area of law relevant to their career trajectory. For example, a student majoring in Computer Science or Engineering may pursue a law minor with a focus on patent law.

Graduating at the end of the Semester?

Apply for Graduation: A Must Do, and Degree Checkout Status

Undergraduate Students: You must apply for graduation in your HUB Student Center (via MyUB).

You will only be able to select the Graduation Terms that are available to apply for, and you will not be able to apply for your degree more than one year in advance. You cannot be in an “Intended” plan and must be officially accepted into a major before you can apply for your degree.

Students who will be receiving two degrees (BA & BS, BFA & BA) and students in a combined degree program must apply for both degrees at the same time.

New Information: Your Degree Conferral Date (the date your degree is awarded) is now in the HUB as a “Graduation Term”; the final term (semester) before your conferral. Please be careful when choosing these dates as they can affect your ability to register and possibly your financial aid eligibility.
