Pre-Law Professional Program

Pre-law study at Anderson University works well within our liberal arts education. Taking classes across the curriculum helps students develop the analytical, writing, research, and oral communication skills necessary to succeed in law school and beyond. These classes also help students acquire the knowledge of history, politics, societies, cultures, economies, and philosophies that make success in law school more likely.

Students planning to attend law school are not restricted to any one major. The top majors for students who apply to law school are political science, English, history, psychology, economics, and business. Students are encouraged to work with their major advisor and AU’s pre-law advisor to select courses from across the curriculum that prepare them for admission to law school and the practice of law.

Au graduates have attended Dayton, DePaul, Duke, Georgetown, Iowa, Indiana University-Bloomington, Indiana University-Indianapolis, NYU, Ohio State, Regent, and Valparaiso. (And they’ve been admitted to a lot more!)
