Can I count courses from my non-CLJ major toward requirements for my Law and Society minor?

It depends. The basic rule is "No Double Dipping." This means that if a course is required by your non-CLJ major, or if it is being used to fulfill elective credit requirements toward your non-CLJ major, it cannot be used to satisfy requirements for the Law and Society minor.
