Pre-Law Undergraduate Certificate

The Urbana University Pre-Law Certification program is designed to guide you – regardless of your major through a comprehensive area of study specifically intended to prepare you for success in both the law school admission process and beyond.

While there is no singular path that will prepare you for a legal education, success in law school typically results from the completion of a broad-based set of liberal arts courses as an undergraduate. Thus, the Pre-Law Certification assures that you have refined core and auxiliary skills and values within the following areas (as recommended by the American Bar Association):

  • Analytic/Problem-solving skills
  • Critical reading
  • Writing skills
  • Oral communication/Listening abilities
  • General research skills
  • Task organization/Management skills
  • Public service and promotion of justice

Furthermore, you’ll be required to maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. Additionally, the pre-law advisor will work with you, in order to help you get your applications to the appropriate institutions on time.
