Stepping Stone to Law School
Pre-Law at Maryville is not a degree, but a program of study. It provides you with a broad liberal arts curriculum in preparation for law school. Many students in the Pre-Law program choose majors in legal studies, history, English or liberal studies with concentrations in political science or philosophy.
Preparing for the LSAT
Students interested in the pre-law program are strongly encouraged to seek information from the Pre-Law advisor at Maryville University regarding the Law School Admission Test (LSAT).
As a Pre-Law student, you may participate in an internship program for credit. The internship with a local court, law firm or government agency will help you explore careers in law and gain valuable experience before attempting admission to law school. Such internships may also lead to excellent recommendations for admission to law school.
Maryville University Legal Association (MULA)
Pre-Law students may participate in the Maryville University Legal Association (MULA), which offers further exposure to the area’s legal field including practicing attorneys, judges and law school admissions counselors.
