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

Our students are accepted to some of the top law schools in Illinois and around the country. Our graduates work in law firms of all sizes, in government positions such as the Federal Bureau of Investigations and as in-house counsel for large corporations. A number of our graduates also work for public interest organizations and local police forces.
