The Pre-Law Advising program in the College of Arts & Sciences provides students with assistance in their preparation for admission to and success in law school. Some of the resources provided include selecting courses and degree programs, AS pre-law courses, resource library, Freshman Learning Community for incoming freshman, and work with the Pre-Law Student Association. These resources, along with others, will give students the best possible academic preparation for the study of law and provide them with information concerning legal education and the legal profession.
Students interested in attending law school are encouraged to select courses that will give them a broad liberal arts education. This generally includes courses in American history, American politics, economics, speech, logic, ethics and expository writing. Students are especially encouraged to seek courses that enhance writing skills, public speaking skills and critical and analytical thinking.
