Legal Studies Study Abroad Liaison

Generally, students who study abroad for one semester have no difficulty completing the Legal Studies minor. Those who choose to study abroad for an entire year may need to work with their advisor or the Study Abroad Liaison to develop a plan that will allow them to finish the major on time.

To assist students with their academic choices abroad and to help answer any questions about receiving minor credit while abroad, each academic department and program has assigned a faculty member to serve as the Study Abroad Liaison. Legal Studies majors who plan to study abroad should speak with the study abroad liaison before they go abroad, and again once they have returned from study abroad.

The liaison for Legal Studies is Prof. Richard Gaskins.

Receiving Credit in Legal Studies

Students wishing to receive Legal Studies credit for work done off campus during the academic year should discuss their desired coursework with their study abroad liaison for Legal Studies. After returning from abroad, download and complete the electronic Petition to Request Substitution for a Requirement form
