    Pre-Law Advising

    Pre-professional programs are advised in the College of Arts and Sciences dean's office.

    Law schools select students from a wide variety of majors. As a result, there is no prescribed curriculum for pre-law at K-State; rather, pre-law is an interest area for students considering law school. Pre-law students select majors in any college on campus. The majors chosen are as diverse as the students who choose them. Law schools are looking for students who excel in their field, whatever it may be. Students who are undecided as to a major should explore curriculum options with an Open Option advisor in the College of Arts and Sciences. Students in all majors who are considering attending law school should consult with the pre-law advisor in the College of Arts and Sciences early in their undergraduate careers.

    While the Association of American Law Schools does not stipulate a particular pre-law curriculum, it emphasizes 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. Law schools also look for depth of knowledge in a field. The development of these capacities is a highly individualized process to be pursued in consultation with the student's major advisor and with the pre-law advisor.

    The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) score is key for admission to law school. The pre-law advisor provides practice LSATs, logic and writing workshops, and other opportunities to prepare for the test. In addition to helping the student prepare for the test, the pre-law advisor works closely with each student on the selection of law schools and on the application process.

    Additional information about pre-law can be found on the pre-law website at
