Pre-Law

Pre-Law Program

A broad liberal arts background, such as that offered in Constantin College, provides solid preparation for success in law school. By supplementing this background with opportunities to sharpen oral skills through participation in Moot Court, and to focus on applications of the law in wider contexts through the Legal Studies concentration, the Pre-Law program allows interested students to deepen their understanding of the legal profession.

Students interested in attending law school should contact the Director of the Legal Studies concentration, Professor David Upham, as soon as possible to get more information regarding the Legal Studies concentration.
