Pre-Law and Career Mentoring

Although the American Bar Association has advised that a pre-law undergraduate major is not necessary to attend law school, some students who major in Business Law may be interested in becoming lawyers. The decision to go to law school is often difficult. Preparing to apply for law school involves thoughtful and serious reflection. There are many factors that law school admissions committees will consider about your background and interests, your achievements, and your performance on the admissions exam and in your undergraduate studies.
