Pre-Law Advising

Pre-Law Advising

Do you dream about continuing your education to law school? UMass Dartmouth's Pre-Law advising program provides a solid foundation for future study in fields including commercial, criminal, environmental, family, labor, and tax law.

Studying law will develop your analytical, logical, and creative thinking skills. A background in law prepares you not only for a practice of law, but also for rewarding careers in advocacy, business, and education.

There is no specific pre-law major at UMass Dartmouth—instead, we recommend that you choose a major that you will enjoy, particularly one that will develop your reading, writing, and analytical skills.

Our program's advisors will recommend courses that will prepare you for the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) and law school itself.
