Pre-Law

It is worth noting there is no listing for a pre-law program in our Undergraduate Catalog. Instead of designating a specific pre-law major or minor, we encourage students to tailor their own pre-professional courses of study with the aid of knowledgeable academic advisers.

While it is common to hear college students identify themselves as "pre-law," it typically means only that they plan to apply to a law school. Few universities anywhere offer an actual undergraduate major titled "pre-law." At those that do, the prescribed course of study represents only an opinion as to the most favored path; those most knowledgeable of law-school admission practices maintain there is no such advantage.
