Graduates of the Legal Studies Program learn about the philosophical, ethical, political, sociological, historical and practical dimensions of law, particularly within the American model but also somewhat in the global domain. Students explore the dominant and alternative paradigms to dispute resolution that exist, including the adversarial assumption, mediation and other forms of conflict resolution. They also have exposure to substantive areas of law, such as contracts, real property, personal injury litigation, family law, and gain an understanding of legal procedures in civil or criminal contexts.

This program offers coursework in law-related topics involving diversity issues, multicultural concerns and international contexts. It also explores the governmental and organizational structures within which law operates.  Many Legal Studies majors pursue a Paralegal Certificate in conjunction with their program course work.

Spott is also a Senior Lecturer with the Department of Business and Economics at UWS, teaching Business Law I.
