Philosophy and Law Minor
For information, contact the Department of Philosophy, 212 Hall Auditorium, 513-529-2440.
This minor offers students not majoring in philosophy the opportunity to explore key features of legal reasoning and the philosophy of law, and to connect these to broader themes in social and political theory. The minor will provide students with intellectual skills (critical reading, identifying and developing arguments, written and oral communication) necessary for the study of law, and will acquaint students with foundational philosophical concepts operative in the law and legal institutions (such as liberty, equality, rights, and responsibility). Students wishing to sign up for the minor should register their interest with the chief departmental advisor. A minimum 2.00 GPA is required for all courses in the minor, and courses must be taken for a grade, not credit/no credit.
