Pre-law students are required to choose a degree major in which they will specialize. No one major best prepares students for law school and no particular course of study is a prerequisite for admission to law school. The Pre-Law Advising Committee suggests that the best preparation for law school is a broad education which ensures exposure to the varieties of thought about the social, political, economic, philosophical, and cultural forces which have shaped law and the societies it governs. Pre-law students must develop substantial skills in writing and be able to think critically and logically.
The Pre-Law Advising Committee urges students to see one of its members as soon as they consider going to law school. Advice on the specific character of each student's pre-law program, help in preparation for the LSAT examination, and support in admission to law school are the aims of each member of the committee.
