Legal Studies is one of six concentration areas in the Social Sciences Interdisciplinary major. The major is designed for students who are interested in studying the political, social and philosophical development of law and the legal process and in examining the law as an instrument of social order and a means of social change. The major has an academic rather than vocational emphasis. For more information please see the Social Sciences Interdisciplinary Degree Programs.

The University at Buffalo Law School is not affiliated with the Legal Studies concentration of the Social Sciences Interdisciplinary Programs. However, the Law School does offer undergraduate courses on the American legal system which students from across the disciplines find interesting (course code JLS). Some of these courses are used in the Legal Studies curriculum.
