Areas of Study: PRE-LAW



After Graduation

Most pre-law students eventually attend law school, but some choose not to.  Going to law school or becoming a lawyer is on the minds of many students as they graduate from high school, but they may not understand exactly what that particular path may entail. Exposure to the profession may steer a student in a different direction, or they may discover another passion along the way.  Whether those paths lead to graduate school, the business world, or any number of other careers, it essential for undergraduate students to understand their options before embarking on a law school search, or perhaps spending thousands of dollars on a law degree.

Even for students who do go on to law school, careers can vary from a myriad of specialties and sub-professions within the law field, to professions where knowledge of the law is important but normally not considered a natural extension of the law degree.
