Academics

Pre-Law

Students of all undergraduate majors can apply to – and succeed in – law school.

Although UMass Boston does not offer a formal prelaw program, we will help you put together an academic plan that best prepares you for law school. Before applying, however, it’s a good idea to examine your reasons for doing so and your expectations for the outcome. The Pre-Law Guide will help you do that, and will give you some insights into law school admissions.

Meet with a pre-law advisor to discuss:

·  Career exploration and career planning
·  Choosing a major/evaluating minors or programs of study
·  Researching law schools
·  Identifying valuable resources
·  How to approach recommendation letters
·  The LSAT
·  Your personal statement
·  and more!

If you are considering law school, please call to schedule an appointment with one of our advisors:
