Main Campus

Mount Aloysius College’s Legal Studies Program integrates law with practical skills needed to get the job and do the work of a valued legal assistant. Students are provided a solid foundation in the liberal arts by taking courses from the humanities, arts and sciences.

In addition, our award-winning Mock Trial team participates in the American Mock Trial Association’s Invitational and Regional competitions. Through this experience, Mount Aloysius students refine and perfect their public speaking, critical thinking and teamwork skills, which can benefit any future career, not just in the legal sphere. Nurses can benefit from the critical thinking skills, marketing individuals can better sell their product, and legal studies graduates students are given a solid foundation for the challenges of law school.
