Pre-Law Minor

This interdisciplinary Pre-Law minor is intended for all undergraduate students considering a legal career. Through study in law as well as many liberal arts subjects, students develop critical thinking and communication skills, and an awareness of ethical considerations that are important for success in the study of law and in the legal profession. Admission to law school generally requires a high grade point average, as well as satisfactory performance on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). While law schools usually do not prescribe any one particular undergraduate course of study for admission, students should obtain information on the specific admission requirements for the schools that they plan to attend. Legal Studies faculty members are available to advise students considering a legal career.
