CIU offers a Pre-Law pathway through various undergraduate majors to empower students seeking to enter the legal profession. A common misconception is that students must graduate with law-related degrees. Admissions experts seek applicants who show a wide range of experiences and capabilities over those who have a strictly law-based undergraduate degree.
If your aim is to become an attorney or paralegal, a liberal arts degree will help you develop the skills and knowledge necessary for legal studies. Students who excel in written communication, reading comprehension and analytical reasoning will most likely also excel in the entrance exam for law school and a law school program.
The advisor for the Pre-Law students is Dr. Jonathan Reibsamen.
