Pre-Law

While there is no prescribed course of study for the undergraduate planning to attend law school, a strong academic record is the best preparation. Law schools emphasize the importance of a broad liberal arts education. The ability to analyze critically and synthesize material, in addition to power of organization, speaking, and writing, are essential. Students are encouraged to choose courses widely, concentrating in an area that is of most interest to them. Questions about preparation for law school and law school applications may be addressed to Christine Kopec, assistant professor of management and business. Additional information is available from Soha Jafarzade, Sands Family Foundation associate director for the Career Development Center.
