Pre-law advising

The Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice (CCJ) provides CCJ students with pre-law advising. If you are interested in attending law school, meet with our pre-law adviser to discuss:
  • course selection
  • quality engagement with undergraduate courses
  • which law schools to consider
  • preparation for the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT)
