Law Preprofessional Program

Taylor 120A
Paul Pavlich, Advisor

A baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university is required for admission to most law schools. Students are encouraged to complete the four-year degree program at SOU. A bachelor of arts or bachelor of science degree with a major in one of the general subject matter fields is appropriate.

Students requiring information about prelegal education or who are interested in law school may find the Prelaw Handbook useful. Published annually by the American Bar Association and the Law School Admission Council, The Official Guide to ABA-Approved Law Schools contains descriptions of all ABA-accredited law schools in the United States, suggestions about preparation for legal studies, and other helpful prelaw information. The book is available at bookstores or from Law Services, PO Box 2400, 661 Penn Street, Newtown, PA 18940-0978. The Political Science program maintains a file of current law school bulletins and other information that may be useful to students seeking admission to law school. For further information about law school or legal careers, contact the prelaw advisor, Paul Pavlich, in the Political Science program.
