A well-rounded liberal arts education is the best way to prepare for a career in law because it prepares the mind for the mental gymnastics and rigor of law school.
Preparing you for law school
The Pre-Law program helps you achieve what you need to enter a range of legal careers. Whether it is individual advising, free LSAT prep sessions, a range of law courses, or hands-on skill development through an internship or our moot court competition, we have what you need to begin a successful career as a lawyer, judge, law enforcement officer or government official.
It’s about more than just becoming a lawyer
