Pre-Law Advising Program


Return to Departments and Programs Return to: Departments and Programs

Because the skills necessary for a law or law-related career can be accomplished in almost any academic discipline – such as English, history, political science, philosophy, or business – the Pre-Law Advising Program is neither a major nor a prescribed set of courses or co-curricular activities for students who are interested in law and law-related fields.

The Pre-Law Advising Program is designed to provide each student with the information necessary to enable him or her to make an informed choice about the pursuit of a law or law-related career. This information is provided through both academic and practical experiences. The Pre-Law Director works with the pre-law student and the student’s major advisor to ensure that a reasonable and sound course of study is followed that will enable the student to develop the skills necessary for a law or law-related career. The Pre-Law Director advises the student on how to best prepare for the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) and works with the student in the preparation and submission of his or her law school applications. In addition, the Pre-Law Director aids each student in selecting a suitable law school while taking into account considerations such as financial aid and career goals.

In order to take best advantage of the opportunities provided by the Pre-Law Advising Program, students interested in pursuing a law or law-related career should register for the Pre-Law Advising Program through either the Center for Student Success or the Pre-Law Director as soon as possible (preferably early in their first year) in order to discuss future course planning, study-abroad and internship opportunities, and long-term plans.

The Pre-Law Director also advises the Pre-Law Club and works with the College’s mock trial team. The Pre-Law Club sponsors on-campus speakers and off-campus field trips designed to provide useful information to pre-law students. The College’s mock trial team participates in regional and national mock trial tournaments and provides students with an excellent opportunity to experience firsthand the litigation process.
