Saint Louis University

The Pre-Law Program offers academic opportunities for undergraduate students interested in the legal field including a secondary major in legal studies and a minor in legal studies.  Eligible students may also apply for the Pre-Law Scholars Program.  More information about each of these programs, as well as descriptions of required courses, can be found by clicking the links located on the left side of this page.

The Pre-Law Program focuses on: 

  • Developing the skills recommended by the American Bar Association to best prepare you for law school and instilling the values of serving faithfully the interests of others while also promoting justice. 
  • Approaching the study of law from a liberal arts perspective, which engages you in an examination of political and legal systems and your responsibilities as a citizen of both your country and the world.
  • Providing you with expertise useful to any academic discipline, including the ability to articulate arguments (both in oral and written communication) while critically analyzing opposing perspectives.
