Offered as a minor
Division Level

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.
