Declaring the Major

Before Declaring the Major

All students are required to complete Legal Studies 10 (Introduction to the Legal Process) with a grade of "C" or better prior to declaring the Legal Studies major. This course is normally taken during the first year. 

To Declare the Major

Complete a Declaration of Major form and the Legal Studies Program Worksheet for the Major. If you are declaring a double major or major/minor you will also need an Academic Planning form. Use the Legal Studies section of the UCSC General Catalog if you need help identifying the major requirements and completing your Worksheet for the Major.

Sign up and attend a declaration of major orientation workshop. Sign-up sheet is located on bulletin board near Merrill-27. 

Bring your completed declaration of major and major worksheet forms to the undergraduate adviser in Merrill-27 during office hours to get declared.
