Pre-Law Concentration

Department of Criminal Justice


The Department of Criminal Justice offers a Pre-Law concentration for Criminal Justice majors that consists of courses selected from several departments across the university. These courses were chosen to help prepare students for the challenges of law school and the practice of law.

Along with the 39 hours of criminal justice degree requirements, an additional 27 credit hours, 18 of which must be 3000-level courses or above, must be earned for the Pre-Law Concentration.

Students who successfully complete this Pre-law Concentration should be better prepared to compete for entry into law school and, ultimately, the rigors of law school and law practice as they will have been exposed to a diverse and demanding undergraduate liberal arts curriculum.

In addition to rigorous coursework and high achievement, law schools also prefer applicants with diverse extra-curricular interest and involvement in campus activities.

The checklist for the Pre-Law Concentration can be found here. Prepare for the LSAT.
