Pre-Law Concentration

The course of study offered for the English Major with a Pre-Law Concentration is well-suited to develop the skills desirable for law school. According to the Law School Admissions Council, students are admitted to law school from almost every academic discipline. They write, “Law schools want students who can think critically and write well, and who have some understanding of the forces that have shaped the human experience. Among the abilities named by the American Bar Association as important preparation for law school are analytic/problem-solving skills, critical reading abilities, oral communication and listening abilities, research skills, organization and management skills, and the values of serving faithfully the interests of others while promoting justice.” Our curriculum teaches students to read and comprehend complex texts with accuracy and insight, the ability to think critically, and to analyze and evaluate the reasoning and arguments of others.
