Pre-Law Study

pre-law study

Law Schools consider all applicants who hold a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent from an accredited college or university. Additional standards and conditions for admission may be imposed in some states. Similarly, Creighton School of Law requires proof of a bachelor's degree prior to beginning legal studies. However, some law schools, including Creighton School of Law, will consider students enrolled in an approved 3/3 program for admission without receipt of a bachelor's degree.

No single major or set of courses is required or recommended to those who wish to prepare for legal study. However, students should select courses which contribute to their skill in comprehension and expression in language, a thorough understanding of human institutions and values, and a capacity for clear, logical and creative thought.

Individualized advice on courses and programs is available from the pre-law advisors in the College of Arts and Sciences, the Heider College of Business, or the Center for Advising Resources and Support.
