A liberal education is an outstanding and proven preparation for law school, regardless of major; any major can prepare a candidate to be a competitive applicant to law school. Successful acceptance to law school involves academic success at the undergraduate level, a strong performance on the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) and a resume that highlights your experiences and accomplishments outside of the classroom.

Utilize the resources available to you, such as meeting with Wesleyan’s Pre-Law Advisor and reaching out to Wesleyan alumni who work in law and follow through on recommendations so your decision to attend law school will be informed and grounded.

The Gordon Career Center sponsors several pre-law events each academic year, visits by admissions officers from top law schools, alumni career talks and other specialized programs.
