What Is It?
The Pre-Law Certificate is an interdisciplinary program that welcomes students of all majors who are interested in attending law school or pursuing graduate education in programs related to law, law and society, legal studies, or other law-related fields.
In March 2022, the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) made these resources available for those interested in law school:
- “LSAC and the LSAT: A Proven Track Record of Supporting Legal Education”
- “Your Journey to Law School”
- “Checklist for Applying to Law School”
Which Classes To Take?
The Certificate's curriculum requirements are comprised of courses from campus-wide contributing departments, including Anthropology, Business and Management, English, Gender and Women's Studies, Geography and Environmental Studies, History, Philosophy, Political Science, and Sociology.
The Certificate's Advisor is Professor Sarah Marusek in UCB 343, who is a member of the interdisciplinary Pre-Law Certificate Steering Committee. The Certificate is housed within the Political Science Department.
