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.”
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.
