Students preparing to enter law school should obtain a strong
education in liberal arts. No one major can be described as the best
prelegal program. Courses in writing, political science, logic,
economics, statistics, and computer science all can be helpful
preparation for law school. Admission to law school is highly
competitive, and law schools consider undergraduate cumulative
grade-point average, strength of academic program, and results of the
Law School Admission Test (LSAT).
Students interested in law school
should consult the campus prelaw advisers, Professors Aman McLeod
and G. Alan Tarr, Department of Political Science, 401 Cooper Street.
