If you have a passion for justice, problem-solving, and deep analysis, then Law may be the right program for you. Champlain's undergraduate Law major is the finest program in the country, preparing you for law school or to directly enter the field and become an indispensable member of a legal team.
At Champlain, we want you to be experiencing the nature of your major from day one. Through our Upside-Down Curriculum, you'll be taking classes like Criminal Law, American National Government, and Contracts in your very first year.
Throughout your four years, you'll explore more specialized areas of the law, such as:
A Champlain education is focused on experiential learning—you'll gain hands-on experience throughout the program. You'll research, write, and give presentations on challenging, complex areas of the most current civil and criminal legal issues that affect today's society—both domestically and globally.
As an undergraduate, you'll already be able to do what the professionals do—write briefs, analyze cases, and draw up complex documents—which will put you ahead in your career or in your graduate school applications. You'll also be able to customize your education with a minor; explore your interests for personal enrichment and/or strengthen your law career prospects by gaining experience in a certain field.
Champlain College's Bachelor of Arts degree in Law is the only program of its kind, providing its graduates with the strongest foundation in law at the undergraduate level.
As a graduate of Champlain's Law program, you will be prepared to succeed in law school or take your place as a qualified law professional in a law firm, government department or agency, financial institution, or any number of diverse areas of the business world.
A partnership with New York Law School provides qualified Champlain Law graduates with a generous scholarship to that esteemed law school.
