A Message from the Chair


Dear Student in Legal Studies,

As Chair of our Jurisprudence programs, it is my distinct honor to welcome your participation in this intellectual undertaking. You are part of a community of scholars - all of whom yearn for further knowledge about law in a theoretical and practical sense. In law and legal systems, paralegals, law enforcement professionals, real estate practitioners, court system support personnel, and business people  are essential players. Our program recognizes your accomplishments but delivers an intellectual experience that is coupled with practice and real life. At Cal U, the novice and experienced legal professional will analyze and dissect legal areas so often encountered in the contemporary workplace. This is a program that will help you climb the professional ladder and develop your intellect in ways that will advance you both personally and professionally.

California University of Pennsylvania's BA in Jurisprudence with a concentration in Legal Studies gives life to your occupation and will help you to advance your career. Even more compellingly, the program advocates and instills the ambitions of true legal reasoning and its practice - to prepare leaders for free and democratic societies and to insure justice whenever and wherever possible.
