Legal Studies - Mission Statement

“The study of law should be introduced as part of a liberal education, to train and enrich the mind…. I am convinced that, like history, economics, and metaphysics — and perhaps even to a greater degree than these — the law could be advantageously studied with a view to the general development of the mind.”

Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis
