The Pre-Law program at Arizona State University is a designation chosen in addition to a student's major. Law schools require a bachelor's degree for entrance into law school; you may choose to major in anything you like. The Association of American Law Schools recommends that an undergraduate education develop certain skills, qualities, knowledge and insights essential to the law student and ultimately to the professional. There are no courses required for law school, but we recommend you take a variety of courses which challenge you intellectually through reading, writing, critical thinking, and analysis all of which can be obtained from any major.These classes, in conjunction with the requirements for a student's major, are what constitute the pre-law program.
Students may major in any subject and choose to also be Pre-Law. Similarly, there are no courses a student must take before attending law school. Law school admissions policies do not favor one major over another, provided the student's chosen major includes a challenging curriculum.
Mary Nadarski is the Pre-Law advisor for all students at Arizona State University. The pre-law advisor is available to guide and mentor students as they prepare for law school. To make an appointment please call 480.965.2365.
