spacerPre-Law Specialization

Both the American Bar Association and the Law School Admissions Council agree that the skills of logic and critical thinking – skills that are at the heart of a Philosophy Major – will serve students well as they apply to and then attend law school. Indeed, statistics show that students with majors in Philosophy tend to achieve the highest scores on the LSAT, and succeed in law school at a greater rate than students in any other major.

This specialization offers students who may be interested in attending law school a significant advantage – and it offers students who are interested in majoring in Philosophy a way to connect that interest to a career in law.

It goes without saying that law school prepares students for a variety of careers – a law career is the most obvious choice, but law school graduates have also succeeded in politics, business, and teaching.
