The term prelaw is used to identify any student interested in the study of law. While there is no set prelaw curriculum or major, a well-balanced academic program including English, public speaking, history, philosophy, political science, economics, natural science, legal studies in business, and language is recommended. A prelaw adviser is available for students in the Office of Academic Advisement. The prelaw adviser assists students in course selection and in planning for the Law School selection and application process. In addition, all students receive regular advisement in their respective academic department.
The Law School Admission Test, sponsored by the Law School Admission Council, is required of applicants to most law schools.
