There is no particular major that enhances a student's application to law school. Students should select a major that they are interested in and take courses that are challenging. The best preparation for law school is to develop analytical skills and reading and writing ability.
The pre-law advisor is Hillary Mantis, Esq., 33 West 60th Street, 8th floor, Career Services department, ext. 6281. She is available for extensive consultation, and students interested in law school should contact her well before their anticipated application to law school.
The following faculty members are also available for consultation about course selection and other academic questions related to the pre-law program:
Dr. John Davenport, LL 916C
Dr. William Jaworski, LL 921F
Dr. George Shea, LL 925E
Applicants to law school must take the LSAT examination. A special non-credit mini-course is offered each semester to prepare students for the LSAT examinations.
The Pre-Law Society sponsors lectures on admission to law school, the law school experience, and careers in the law. It also sponsors workshops to assist students in preparing their applications to law schools.
Pre-Law information is available on the bulletin board outside the academic offices in Lowenstein Room 924. Students will find notices of interest to pre-law students.
