General Information:


Lindon Newberry, advisor

The Association of American Law Schools does not recommend a specific major or minor as the preferred pre-legal course of study. Several programs of undergraduate education are available and suitable as pre-legal education. These programs will involve work in English, speech, economics, history, accounting, political science and various other fields, regardless of the major chosen. Successful study and practice of law requires: (a) an ability to write and comprehend written materials; (b) critical understanding of political institutions; and, (c) creative thinking. Entrance into law school is based on a combination grade point average and scores on the standardized Law Schools Admissions Test. For further information, contact Mr. Lindon Newberry, Plaster School of Business.

The College will assist students who wish to avail themselves of law school early admissions programs and, with prior written approval, students may apply up to 30 hours of law school courses to their undergraduate degree requirements. This combined curriculum enables students to obtain both the bachelor of arts (BA) or bachelor of science (BS) and the juris doctor (JD) degrees in six years.
