Pre-Law (Business), A.B.


Return to Degree/Certificate Programs Return to: Degree/Certificate Programs

There is no prescribed or required set of courses for pre-legal work. Students must have a B.A. or B.S. degree before beginning the professional study of law. There are no restrictions as to the field in which the degree is earned.

Generally, the objective of pre-legal study is to acquire a background useful in the study and practice of law. College study should prepare the student for law school by developing language comprehension and use, understanding of political, economic, social, and cultural institutions, and the ability to think logically and creatively. Courses promoting these objectives are included in the basic requirements for most undergraduate degrees. The choice of a major should be determined by the student’s academic interest and professional objectives in law. Subjects providing a valuable background for the study or practice of law include accounting, business administration, economics, English, history, language, philosophy, political science, psychology, and sociology.

There are two major directions to obtain a pre-law degree: business or social science.

This is a transfer degree.
