While there is no set college curriculum to follow to prepare for law school and a career as a lawyer, a solid background in liberal arts, particularly in the social sciences and humanities, can help prepare you for the profession.
Ball State’s prelaw program will help you develop analytical and creative thinking and verbal and written communications skills, as well as a basic understanding of the social institutions and values that involve the legal system. Through course work in political systems and government structures, you’ll be solidly prepared for law school.
Graduates of the prelaw program have been accepted at high rates by many law schools throughout the country, including Ivy League law schools and prestigious regional schools. Our graduates find positions in law firms, government agencies, and corporate offices.
