The University Pre-Law Program is open to all students for advising about law schools and legal careers. Students interested in studying law are encouraged to meet with the Pre-Law Program Director, based in the Political Science Department. The Pre-Law Director counsels students regarding career goals, courses of study, registration for the LSAT, law school choices, and much more. The Director maintains a small collection of books about law school and law careers for student use.
Undergraduates interested in law school may pursue any major and may apply for the 3-3 Early Admissions Law program with Duquesne Law School. The Philosophy Department features the Philosophy and Law Connection. The Political Science Department includes a Minor in Law & Politics available to majors in any field and a Concentration in Law & Politics for political science majors and double majors.
