Pre-Law Concentration

The Philosophy program’s new pre-law concentration allows students interested in attending law school to take classes that will provide the reasoning, analytic skills and moral grounding necessary to succeed there.
Classes in the pre-law curriculum include Philosophy of Law, Introduction to Logic, Social and Political Philosophy, and Ethics. These classes provide students with early exposure to the concepts and principles commonly taught in law school, and the skills vital to the successful practice of law. Students interested in careers as defense attorneys, prosecutors, judges, or other law-related fields would benefit greatly from this concentration in philosophy.
