English Major with a Pre-Law Emphasis

Students interested in preparing for law school are wise to choose a rigorous English major which will help develop exceptional strength in critical reading and writing, logical reasoning, analytical thought, and moral responsibility to oneself and others. Because there is no specific pre-law major, the student must establish regular communication with an advisor as soon as possible to ensure the best possible preparation through course work, co-operative education, advising, and preprofessional testing.
