Law School Preparation

The Association of American Law Schools recommends that students planning to enter law school develop basic skills and insights considered essential for legal competence. These faculties include perception and skill in the use of the English language, a critical understanding of the human institutions and values with which the law deals, and the development of creative powers of thinking, reasoning, and analysis. The Pre-Law Program is thus flexible in terms of courses and majors and should be planned with the faculty advisor in light of the student’s background and professional goals. Learn more.
