While a college student planning to pursue law can major in any discipline, philosophy is among the more common choices, and many of our philosophy majors have continued successfully in law school. Law schools want students to come in with a background in logic, reasoning, and problem-solving. For the student who enjoys thinking and rational argument, and who is eager to pursue a challenging course of study, the pre-law philosophy major is a good option.
The Pre-Law Advisor is Professor Jason Matzke.
