Information for Pre-Law Students
Each year, many Northwestern students and recent graduates apply to law school. The best preparation for law school is simply to get the most out of your liberal arts education. There is no specific major you must choose, no particular set of courses you must complete in order to prepare for law school. As an undergraduate considering a career in law, you should hone your ability to write cogently and coherently, to analyze carefully and accurately, to reason logically, and to speak effectively and articulately. You should also try to learn more about what law school and legal practice are really like.
Your Weinberg Adviser can help you make academic decisions and devise a strategy for positioning yourself to make a successful application. You should also consult our Guide for Pre-Law Students. University Career Services can also help you; they offer a range of pre-law advice, and they mainatain a detailed list of pre-law resources.
