Legal Studies and Prelaw Minor


Law schools generally require an applicant to be the holder of a bachelor’s degree. A curriculum plan is developed by the prelaw student in consultation with the prelaw or academic advisor. This will include an introductory law class, a legal research and writing class, a legal ethics class, a capstone class, and specific electives. Classes and activities are tailored to meet the goals of students desiring to attend law school. Most law schools also require students to submit scores from the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). Prelaw students may receive assistance in applying for the LSAT through their prelaw advisor or LSPL faculty.
