Preparation for Law School

Students preparing for application to law school should develop three basic competencies: skill in analysis and reasoning, effective writing and speaking, and breadth of understanding of the diverse factors that make up the community in which the legal system functions. These competencies can be developed in any field in which the student chooses to major, whether in the social sciences, the humanities, or the natural sciences. Law schools do not specify particular major fields or particular courses of study for admission. Law schools require applicants to submit transcripts from all institutions at which they have completed courses, including summer school and study abroad programs.
