Foundations and Applications of the Law

The minor in Pre-Law provides a coherent grouping of courses in the foundations and applications of the law. Specifically, the program is designed to acquaint students with:

  • Different approaches to the study of law
  • The elements of legal reasoning
  • A body of case law in substantive areas
  • The skills necessary to succeed in a law school program  

The pre-law minor may appeal to students who major in non-law-related fields and plan to apply to law school. It exposes them to legal courses before pursuing their professional education. The minor in pre-law does not guarantee successful admission into law school nor is it a prerequisite for law school.
