The pre-law program is designed to help students determine whether a career in law makes sense for them, effectively navigate through the process of applying to law school, and select a law school that best fits their future goals. Law schools accept applicants from a wide variety of majors, but they closely examine transcripts for evidence that the applicant has taken challenging classes that develop students’ abilities to problem solve, read critically, write and edit, communicate orally, and listen well. Students interested in law school should meet with a pre-law advisor early in their academic career to develop a plan tailored to the student’s interests and the intellectual rigor that will prepare students for the law school experience.
