Students interested in attending law school after graduation should understand that there is no single pre-law curriculum. Rigidly structured “pre-law majors” are in fact strongly discouraged by schools of law. A wide variety of undergraduate majors are suitable as law school preparation, provided they have a strong academic content. Courses that develop a student’s ability to think logically and to express thoughts lucidly in written form are strongly suggested. Most students in the Pre-Law program earn a bachelor of science degree in political science or interdisciplinary studies.
