Vanderbilt Is Third University With Top 20 Law School To Offer Undergraduate Degree In Law

Following up on my previous post, USC Is Sixth School To Offer Undergraduate Degree In Law:  The Vanderbilt Hustler, Vanderbilt Law School to Offer Undergraduate Introduction to Legal Studies Minor Beginning Fall 2024

Vanderbilt Law School Logo (2023)Beginning in Fall 2024, Vanderbilt Law School will offer a 15-credit-hour undergraduate introduction to legal studies minor, joining a small group of law schools to host undergraduate academic programs.  ...

VLS Dean Chris Guthrie did not directly respond to The Hustler’s request for an interview about the minor, instead expressing excitement about the new minor in an email.

“By offering courses taught by law professors, we think the minor will help our undergraduates decide whether they want to pursue law school and a legal career,” Guthrie said. “Students will be able to make an informed judgment about pursuing law school and/or a legal career, gain knowledge and skills that will give them a leg up in law school or non-legal career paths and graduate with a better understanding of how the law shapes our society.”
