Hosted by the Political Science Department, the Pre-Law minor is an interdisciplinary program designed to enable students to develop essential skills for the study and practice of law. It is a rigorous program of study intended to introduce students to broad areas of law, the institutions of law making, and to developing the critical-thinking and analytical skills to succeed.
Law schools accept students with any major, and the Pre-Law minor is open to students from any major. The Pre-Law minor is an appropriate complement to any major and strengthens students’ preparation for studying and working in law. Political Science majors may apply all political science courses in the Pre-Law program to their major program as well. Students interested in law school or graduate school in a related field, regardless of whether they are Pre-Law minors, should contact the Pre-Law Faculty Advisor for assistance in preparing to apply to law or graduate school.
