Advance to law school with Pre-Law

The academic requirement for admission to law school is satisfied by all baccalaureate degree programs offered at Schreiner. While many students major in history, business administration, English, accounting, or general studies—political science (pre-law track) as a base for pre-law education, no law school specifies particular courses or curricula as prerequisite to admission. Most require only a baccalaureate degree and an acceptable score on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT).

The Pre-law Handbook, published by the Association of American Law Schools and the Law School Admission Council, states that pre-legal education should develop oral and written comprehension and expression as well as creative thinking and critical understanding of human values and that no one discipline is uniquely concerned with those objectives. Therefore, pre-law students should strive for development of their own capabilities within the areas of their greatest interest. Interested students should contact their academic advisor in their first year at Schreiner for assistance in designing a suitable program.
