While interning with Congressman Marsha Blackburn, Oklahoma native and Freed-Hardeman graduate Connor Kohlscheen served in our nation’s capitol for a summer. After being accepted by several law schools, the summa cum laude graduate chose the University of Memphis to pursue his law degree. As the first baseman on the conference-winning Lion baseball team, Kohlscheen learned the value of effort and team work, skills he can use in his own career. Challenging opportunities in and out of the classroom, including internships to strengthen experience, make Freed-Hardeman a university
Over 150 years ago, Alexis de Tocqueville observed, "Scarcely any political question arises in the United States that is not resolved, sooner or later, into a judicial question."
The world is shaped by political disputes, and in America, political disputes are still profoundly influenced, and often decided, by the courts. The major in Law and Politics examines critical issues of power, liberty, equality, legitimacy, and the state, with special emphasis on the role of law and the legal system in their determination. Our students focus on developing an understanding of the relationships between government, politics and law by examining the philosophical and constitutional foundations of the American republic, its political and legal systems, and contemporary issues in both fields.
The major in Law and Politics helps students become informed, responsible citizens while preparing them for advanced studies and careers in fields like law, government, education, business, journalism, public service, and the military. For more information on the Bachelor of Arts in Law and Politics, please contact Dr. Stephen Morris at email@example.com.
To make your path to graduation a little easier, a 4-year plan for students planning to major in Law and Politics has been created:
