Students who plan to apply to law school upon completing their baccalaureate degree do not have to complete any specific course requirements for admission to law school. Instead, they should major in the discipline that best suits their intellectual interests and talents. Pre-law students should seek a rigorous and broad-based education that will ensure them a fundamental understanding of American society and its institutions. Students should become familiar with mathematical analysis and scientific reasoning, and develop excellent oral and written communication skills.
Pre-law advising is available in the Preprofessional Advising Office. In addition, the Preprofessional Advising Office sponsors a fall Law Fair, spring Law Day and a year-long speaker series. Contact the Preprofessional Advising Office in University Club 111 for more information. Check the pre-law advising webpage for information on events, the student pre-law organization, applications and many other useful resources. Current students and alumni may schedule pre-law advising appointments through MyCUHub.
