A lawyer is involved in people’s lives as an advocate, negotiator, advisor, mediator, and public citizen and has the responsibility to preserve the rights of individuals and to secure justice in a democratic republic. Students in the pre-law program at K-State meet with an advisor to select courses that will develop capacities necessary for law study. Students are able to choose any major and work with an advisor to tailor classes to meet the requirements for law school.
