Certificate in Pre-Law
Pre-law Certificate Program
The pre-law certificate program is designed to provide the essential skills and background knowledge to excel in a career in law or policy. This rigorous certificate program is designed for strong students and is a companion to any major.
In addition to ensuring that students master the essential skills and understand the requisite background knowledge for a career in law or policy, the program also provides advising to help students select the best path to such a career. We provide a variety of services to students, including assistance with (1) course work planning, (2) locating appropriate internship and volunteer opportunities, (3) exploring career opportunities, including legal work, public policy formation, advocacy and related fields, (4) preparing for the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT), and (4) the application process to law and graduate schools.
The program offers students the opportunity to learn more about careers in law and policy through regular fieldtrips and other activities reserved for students in the program. Students are also encouraged to attend presentations by invited speakers from a wide range of areas in law and policy.
The Pre-law Certificate Program Committee will award a student the Pre-law Program Certificate and will issue a letter certifying successful completion program for any student who meets the following requirements:
