Law schools prescribe no particular college program. Therefore, a pre-law student may select her major(s) and minor(s) according to interest and aptitude without adversely affecting admission to law school. The prospective lawyer’s education should be as broad as possible, including the development of writing and reading skills, logical and analytical thinking, and understanding of legal, political, social and economic issues and institutions. Because competition for admission to reputable law schools is intense, it is important to maintain a high level of academic achievement.

Students who want to go on to law school should consult frequently with the pre-law advisor, certainly at least once per year and preferably more often. The Pre-Law Society, a student-led and student-run organization, provides additional opportunities and resources for the pre-law student.

The web site for the Law School Admission Counci: www.lsac.org provides a great deal of helpful information and is a good resource for students who are interested in preparing for, and getting into, law school.

Pre-Professional Programs

Although essentially a liberal arts college, the College of Arts & Sciences offers certain pre-professional curricula for students who plan to enter professional schools. For medical and paramedical curricula, Andrews University maintains a special relationship with Loma Linda University.
