Pre-Law Studies

Essential information for students interested in pre-law studies.

Law schools want to see students who are able to express ideas with clarity and force. Students must obtain an undergraduate education that includes critical analysis, logical reasoning, and written and oral expression. Students must learn to read works of literature and exposition with comprehension and speed, and should continuously practice argument and debate. An understanding of human values and institutions is a lifetime goal, but the best opportunity to begin this quest is during one’s undergraduate years. Careful study within each of the great divisions of human knowledge—the humanities, the sciences, and the social sciences—is indispensable.
