Pre-law Certificate Program
Law and policy graduate schools are interested in students with a variety of academic backgrounds. Undergraduates are not required to take any specific set of prerequisite courses in order to apply for these graduate programs. While the pre-law certificate program constitutes a directed course of action to prepare students for law and policy graduate programs, schools are always attracted to any student with a well-rounded liberal arts education, no matter what their major may be. Pre-law advising is available and encouraged for all GMC students interested in law or policy-related careers, regardless of whether or not a student chooses to participate in the pre-law certificate program described below.

The pre-law certificate program is designed to provide the essential skills and background knowledge to excel in a career in law or policy. The rigorous certificate program is designed for strong students and is a companion to any major.

Students in the certificate program can expect encouragement and guidance from members of the pre-law committee as they explore career opportunities, identify internship opportunities, prepare for the LSAT, and submit applications to law or policy graduate schools.
