The pre-law emphasis in legal studies is designed for students interested in law school or graduate school. As students search for ways to better prepare themselves for the rigors of further education, the pre-law track provides multiple levels of legal drafting, preparation in the area of legal research, and a broad view of various substantive and philosophical areas of law. This provides students with a good foundation in critical thinking and practical skills necessary for aspiring lawyers or legal scholars.
