Bradley’s pre-law program equips you for law school and related careers in the legal profession.
Bradley's pre-law program, with guidance from the Center for Legal Studies, helps you choose your path to law school. Because law schools don't require a particular academic degree, you can choose any major to qualify for admission to law school. Common majors include business, criminology, English, political science and public relations. The CLS director works with you to pick courses, arrange internships, fill out applications, write personal statements and choose law schools. The CLS also uniquely focuses on LSAT preparation by giving you practice exams, some of which are professionally scored at the center's expense, and meeting with you to prepare a study plan for the test. You also can earn a legal studies minor, which provides the curriculum that develops the reading and communication skills necessary in a legal profession.
Bradley’s pre-law track successfully prepares you for graduate school. In recent years, most students continued their education within six months of graduation. They’re receiving legal training at institutions such as the University of Chicago, University of Iowa, Southern Illinois University and Indiana University.
