Pre-Law Professional Program

In accordance with guidelines recommended by the Association of American Law Schools, the University has not established a specialized “pre-law” major, but rather, encourages prospective law students to undertake a course of study that develops “comprehension and expression in words, critical understanding of the human institutions with which the law deals and creative power in thinking.”

Various undergraduate majors offer appropriate preparation for law-school education. The most frequently selected majors of successful pre-law students at the University are: 

The Law, Justice and Advocacy minor is an interdisciplinary program designed to improve critical thinking, communication, writing and advocacy skills. These skills are beneficial to most careers and professions, but particularly valuable for students interested in attending law school or entering other law-related careers. Recent graduates have attended nationally renowned law schools across the nation.  

The University provides designated faculty pre-law advisors who are familiar with law school admissions requirements, application procedures and curricula. It also sponsors pre-law forums with attorneys as guest speakers, internships in law and judicial offices, campus visits by law school representatives, and student visits to law schools to assist undergraduates in planning.
