Pre-Law

A successful career in law demands proficiency in three-skills areas: the ability to think critically, the ability to analyze information from a variety of sources and apply that analysis to solving problems, and the ability to communicate that analysis to others. While completion of any undergraduate degree program confers eligibility for law school, the most successful candidates often come from programs located in the Liberal Arts which emphasize mastery of these skills.
