You don’t have to choose a particular major to go to law school. In fact, law schools are interested in candidates from a variety of disciplines. However, you’ll need to develop some key skills and learn some relevant concepts, and Elmhurst offers a variety of courses that can help. For example:
- In Constitutional Law I, Constitutional Law II and Criminal Law, you’ll read and brief Supreme Court cases as well as learn substantive areas of law.
- Our Logic course can help you prepare for specific sections of the LSAT.
- In Mock Trial, you’ll research a fictional legal case and compete to win trials before members of the local legal community.
In addition, the College’s Center for Professional Excellence can help you connect with an internship in the law.
We encourage you to work closely with your pre-law advisor when choosing courses at Elmhurst.
