Pre-law

Lawyers assume the responsibility of preserving the rights of a nation's citizens and securing justice in a democratic republic. As such, they consistently take on roles as advocates, negotiators, advisors, and mediators. Students within the pre=law program are invited to pursue any major, but are encouraged to work closely with a pre-law advisor who will aid them in selecting courses tailored to their academic and career interests that coincide with the pre-requisites for law school. 

For more information and assistance, please feel free to contact the following adviser:
