Pre-Law Advising

Supreme Court building

These pages provide resources for those students considering or applying to law school. Though law can be a highly rewarding and flexible career choice, law school is a demanding and costly endeavor. You should begin, therefore, by thinking carefully about whether to apply.

If you do decide that law school is right for you, the next step is to select a set of schools where you will apply. Once you are ready to apply to particular schools, the application process is generally quite straightforward. You will need to: 

  1. Register with the Law School Admission Council (LSAC).
  2. Register for and take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT),
  3. Provide an academic transcript, using the LSAC's transcript request forms.
  4. Solicit at least two letters of recomendation.
  5. Write and submit a résumé and personal statement.

Follow the links on this site to find out more about each of these steps. Keep up with current Pre-Law Events on the Pre-Law Blog.

If you have any questions, or need to talk further about any aspect of the application process, please contact:
