Most directors of law school admissions indicate that a wide variety of majors from various colleges are appropriate for admission to their law school. Since there is no formal pre-law curriculum, a course of study is designed to prepare students for law school in conjunction with the student's formal major. Essentially, it will provide students contemplating a career in law with a broad-based program of study that focuses on improvement of the student's skills in oral communication, writing, and analytical reasoning.
Students interested in careers in law are encouraged to speak with a Pre-Law advisor and to participate in various law-related programs such as law school visitations, the Pre-Law Society, and Distinguished Jurist Day. Your Pre-Law advisor will provide guidance on the law school admissions test (LSAT), law school application process, and on selecting the best law school for you. LSAT and law school applications are available in room 191 Bowen Hall. For additional information, contact Whit Waide at 662-325-7860.
