About the Department

By its nature, the study of law draws on historical and cultural perspectives, requires awareness and resolution of moral and ethical issues, demonstrates the need for clear and concise communication, and leads to an increased understanding of how individuals, organizations, and societies pursue goals. The Department of Law seeks to educate and inspire cadets to be leaders of character who are critical thinkers, creative problem solvers, effective communicators, and agile decision-makers in a rapidly changing and often ambiguous world.
