Legal Studies
Legal Studies is designed for students who want to begin a course of study that will take them from Ivy Tech to a bachelor’s degree and, maybe one day, on to law school or other graduate program!

Students in the Legal Studies program will learn about government structures, sources of law, legal research and writing, civil procedure and litigation, and legal ethics.

As a transfer degree, the Legal Studies program is a starting point for a student interested in the law.  It is designed to be a transfer program; however, students may be able to transfer into a variety of different disciplines, including: paralegal, legal studies, law in liberal arts, and other bachelor’s programs.  If you are interested in the law, then Legal Studies is the right starting point for you!

Our Graduates

Graduates of the Legal Studies program are able to transfer to a four-year program in a variety of different disciplines.  Most often, the transfer program will be labeled legal studies, paralegal studies, or law in liberal arts.  However, we also have students who have successfully transferred to general studies, organizational management, psychology, political science, and a variety of other programs.
