Law (Arizona State University)
A course in pre-law prepares students for success gaining their juris doctorate at the nation’s top law schools. While not a degree option, many students who plan on passing the bar have benefitted from an emphasis in pre-law. Arizona State University is recognized for having one of the best pre-law courses in the country.
The Bar Association requires law schools to only admit students with a bachelor’s degree (or equivalent), and most universities don’t offer one specifically in pre-law. However, the pre-law track not only familiarizes students with legal research, but they also often work closely with lawyers and law professors, gaining insight to how courts function as well as building a reputation within the community of legal professionals.
Students may learn about LSAT preparation, legal studies and concepts, the intricacies of a law school application, critical thinking and applied creativity. Workshops, events and law office experience can help familiarize students using hands-on participation researching cases while challenging them intellectually.
ASU's academic programs are spread across campuses in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area; however, unlike most multi-campus institutions, the campuses of ASU are all individually different- each has its own distinct function to fulfill in line with the university's mission.Read more About this school
