Preprofessional StudiesPre-Law

Program Overview

Pre-Law Specialty Studies involves coursework that will help you develop the skills in analysis, problem-solving, critical reading, writing, oral communication, listening, task organization and management that are necessary for a law career. You’ll work closely with a pre-law advisor in choosing courses that meet your interest and develop knowledge of history, political thought, pre-calculus, finance, human behavior, social interaction, diverse cultures, international institutions and world events. Your pre-law advisor will also help you apply for the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) and advise you in the law school application process.

You can choose from a wide variety of liberal arts majors that will help you gain the skills and knowledge necessary for law school entrance and success. At Concordia, small class sizes and one-on-one relationships with your professors allow them to know your skills and characteristics well enough to write insightful letters of recommendation for law school entrance. Concordia’s emphasis on relevant, hands-on learning will give you plenty of experiences outside the classroom that will stand out on your law school application.
