Complete a Pre-Law Certificate Program | Pre-Law Undergraduate Certificate

The pre-law certificate prepares students from any major for success in law school and provides guidance throughout the law school admission process. You’ll explore the philosophy of law and dive deep into the core aspects of ethics, legal writing and correspondence, and the American legal system.

The completion of a broad-based set of liberal arts courses during undergraduate studies can provide a solid foundation for attending law school. Our pre-law certification builds upon that foundation and assures that you possess a strong grasp of core and complementary skills as recommended by the American Bar Association, including problem solving, critical reading, writing, communication, research, organization and public service.

Whether you choose a career in politics, advocacy or constitutional law, the pre-law certificate can help you build a successful career in the legal field.
