Pre-Law Education
Pre-law, contrary to common belief, is not a major but rather a term that describes a student interested in applying for admission to a law school.

Because overall GPA is important in applying for admission to a law school, a pre-law student should consider a major which he/she enjoys and can do well. It is advisable to consider the major as an alternative to law school or one which can be used in conjunction with the law degree. Law schools are looking for individuals who have a high level of writing competence; good analytical skills; intellectual discipline; breadth in humanities, sciences and social sciences; and a general understanding of the business world. Most law schools require a baccalaureate degree. The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is required. A pre-law student needs to plan a course of study in cooperation with a counselor in the Counseling Center.
