Justice and Ethics in Law Minor
Saint Joseph’s University’s justice and ethics in the law (JEL) minor puts the relationship with the legal system into perspective as it emphasizes the ethical, corporate, social and political structures that underlie the law.
As a minor, you will take courses in legal reasoning and ethics, offered in both the College of Arts and Sciences and the Haub School of Business. The self-designed nature of the program allows you to integrate issues of justice into any major.
This interdisciplinary minor encourages you to develop a commitment to serving others and promoting justice as they reflect on issues of law and ethics. The program complements the University’s mission of engaged citizenship as well as its commitment to serving the community outside of the classroom.
Each year, one graduating JEL minor receives the SJU Law Alumni Award based on a combination of courses, service work, independent research, activism, and/or leadership contribution to ethics and justice in the law. Our minors continue on to careers in law, business, public policy and social work.
