UMass Dartmouth's Pre-Law advising track is open to all majors with any level of interest in law school or a legal career. There is no one route to law school, so the Pre-Law advising program recommends courses in your major that develop analytical, logical, and creative-thinking skills, providing a solid foundation for future study in commercial, criminal, environmental, family, labor, and tax law, and preparing you for the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) and law school itself.
