Offered as a minor
Division Level
Undergraduate

Law schools seek applicants from a wide variety of academic backgrounds. Pre-Law preparation develops specific skills such as reading critically, writing clearly, thinking analytically, and speaking persuasively. The development of these skills emphasized in the programs serve as a foundation for other matters as well: excellence in the use and comprehension of language; broad knowledge and appreciation of legal, political, and social institutions; familiarity with both western and non-western traditions and value systems; and a capacity for problem solving. Students accomplished in these areas will have an advantage not only in a law school environment, but in whatever endeavors they may elect to undertake.
