Pre-Law Coursework as Part of Undergraduate Programs

Students interested in a law career should plan their undergraduate curriculum to receive a broad liberal education. According to law school reports, there is no single major that is the ideal preparation for law school. Students are advised to select courses which sharpen their analytical and critical thinking abilities. Law schools prefer students who can think, read and write well, and have some understanding of what shapes human experience. The University offers a Political/Legal Studies major that provides a strong interdisciplinary liberal arts-based, law-related curriculum. This major is appropriate as preparation for law school or other advanced legal study. However, other academic majors are also appropriate as preparation for a law career. A faculty member is designated as pre-law advisor, providing counsel about coursework and about entry into law school.
