PRE-LAW (MINOR)

Pre-legal education should be a preparation for a lifetime of active involvement in a diverse and changing society and not just a direct preparation for law school. There is no single curricular path that is ideal preparation for law school. However, this pre-law minor specifically seeks to help students further improve their skills in critical thinking, reading, writing, and public speaking, and also to develop an understanding of what shapes human experience within American society and the American legal system.

According to the American Bar Association and law schools, pre-legal education should be a preparation for a lifetime of active involvement in a diverse and changing society and not just a direct preparation for law school. There is no single curricular path that is ideal preparation for law school.

However, this pre-law minor specifically seeks to help student further improve their skills in critical thinking, reading, writing, and public speaking, and also to develop some understanding of what shapes human experience within American society and the American legal system. Although any undergraduate major will suffice for admission to law school, most law school students major in one or more of the following: political science, history, philosophy, and/or English.

Pre-law students should contact the pre-law advisor at least once a semester to keep informed about various activities relevant to their pre-law preparation. Pre-law students are also encouraged to join the Dominican University of California Pre-Law Chapter of Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity, International. Please contact the pre-law advisor or the chapter president for more information.
