Why Minor in Pre-Law?
This Pre-Law Minor offers an interdisciplinary introduction to law and legal institutions that emphasizes the skill-sets that are necessary for success in law school, as well as graduate programs and careers related to law. Law schools do not require applicants to have a specific major or to have taken specific classes, but they do emphasize that certain skills are essential to success in their programs. This program offers students a guided path to developing those skills, while allowing the freedom to major in a subject that interests them. The program is suggested for individuals considering law school or graduate programs with a legal emphasis.
