Attorneys have a variety of academic backgrounds – economics,
English, history, philosophy and political science. Law
schools do not designate a major program concentration as a
prerequisite for admission. Law schools admit students who are
broadly trained and who evidence analytical skills, good writing
and oral communication abilities, as well as social awareness.
You can‚ therefore‚ prepare for law school by fulfilling the
general education requirements at Marygrove College, and
choosing from a variety of majors and minors.
Your academic major can help prepare you for law school. It
can also provide you with training for an alternative career
should you choose not to enter law school immediately after
graduating from Marygrove College.
A pre-law counselor is available at Marygrove to assist you
in planning your education and identifying professional
opportunities. The counselor keeps abreast of trends in legal
education and can assist you with law school application
procedures, options for financial assistance‚ information on The
Law School Admission Test (LSAT) and career planning.
