Each of these law schools participated in the creation of this major and the individual course selections. 

Articulation agreements have been confirmed with both Ohio Northern University College of Law and Capital University Law School, provided UF students meet the specific requirements for each school.


Students have an opportunity to work and study through the Washington Center organization. The Washington Center​ enables students to gain the experience needed for entry-level employment and to prepare for lives of achievement, engagement and leadership in order to shape the next generation of leaders.​
