    Pre-Law Advising

    Law schools across America select students from a wide variety of majors. As a result, there is no prescribed pre-law major or curriculum at K-State; rather, pre-law is an interest area for students considering attending law school. If a student is undecided, the pre-law advisor will help the student explore curriculum options with the goal of finding a major.

    Pre-law students may select the major of their choice in any college. The Association of American Law Schools does not prescribe a particular pre-law curriculum; however, it does emphasize the selection of rigorous courses that will aid students in the development of critical and analytical thinking skills, a facility with written and spoken expression, an understanding of our society's institutions and values, and creative power in thinking. The development of these capacities is a highly individualized process to be pursued in consultation with the student's major advisor and the pre-law advisor.

    Students in all majors who are considering attending law school should consult with the pre-law advisor in the College of Arts and Science dean's office as early as possible in their undergraduate career. Additional information about pre-law can be found on the College of Arts and Sciences homepage at
