The Legal Studies/Pre-Law concentration is for those interested in pursuing a career in law. We offer:
A Challenging Academic Program: We prepare you for the rigors of law school through lectures, seminars, mock trials, simulations and guest lecturers that provide a solid foundation of the legal system and issues.
Excellent LSAT Preparation: Many of our students report that their performance on the LSAT was improved as a result of the LSAT Preparation course. This course gives students opportunities to practice questions and analyze their strengths and weaknesses as they prepare for that law school entrance exam.
A Proven Training Ground for Law School: Our curriculum will help prepare you for the challenges of a law school curriculum. Courses like Introduction to Law will provide you with a basic legal vocabulary and knowledge base that provides a solid foundation for your first year of law school. Other courses like Constitutional Law and American Civil Liberties prepare you for the required constitutional law courses you’ll encounter in law school. Plus, because of our emphasis on academic rigor, you’ll already know the basics of legal research and writing before they ever walk onto the law school campus.
Whether you want to study and practice in Kansas or elsewhere, we can help you gain access to some of the top law schools in the country (or abroad). Many of our students have won full-ride scholarships and gone on to successful careers in the field of law.
