Students interested in pursuing admission to law school are encouraged to supplement the major of their choice with the College’s Pre-Law minor.
This interdisciplinary course of study is designed to cultivate the skills that are essential in any legal career: the ability to analyze complex and complicated materials, to think logically and clearly, and to write and speak with precision. The Pre-Law minor also helps students develop the research skills that are required by law schools.
The Pre-Law minor consists of three core courses and two electives selected from a list of five courses. Students are also encouraged to complete an internship in a legal setting in order to explore various areas of the law, gain experience completing legal tasks, and strengthen their law school applications.
