If you’re interested in attending law school after completion of your undergraduate degree, you can choose a major that’s of greatest interest to you as law schools recruit from every discipline. Your pre-law advisor will work with you to choose law-related subject matter and also assist with the law school application process.

As a Pre-Law student, you will declare a separate major, but will have access to a variety of services, including pre-law advising.
