Prelaw

Good news: because the study of law does not require the completion of specific undergraduate majors or courses, prospective attorneys have remarkable freedom in their choice of study.

Nevertheless, the Association of American Law Schools recommends that students wishing to enter law school acquire a certain range of knowledge and skills.

That's where we come in. Your academic adviser will help you develop an individualized program that optimizes the training you'll need; for additional help you can contact our specialized prelaw adviser. Our active Pre-Law Society schedules opportunities for you to meet with law school admission counselors, law faculty, and practicing attorneys. And when it comes time to apply to law schools, the Office of Career Services will assist you with selection and forms.
