Law schools seek applicants from a wide variety of academic backgrounds. The Pre-Law Minor helps students develop specific skills such as reading critically, writing clearly, thinking analytically, and speaking persuasively.
The development of the skills emphasized in the program serve as a foundation for:
- excellence in the use and comprehension of language
- broad knowledge and appreciation of legal, political, and social institutions
- familiarity with both western and non-western traditions and value systems
- a capacity for problem solving
The Pre-Law Minor is an excellent complement to any major, and especially to students considering careers in law, government, criminal justice, or other public service.
