Pre-Law

The Pre-Law Advising Program prepares you for law school and eventual legal careers. As both law schools and the American Bar Association point out, there is no single "set" curriculum for the pre-law student. Accordingly, the pre-law advising program is a resource for any student interested in law, whatever their major.

Pre-Law Advising sponsors informational sessions, hosts a sanctioned regional moot court tournament, presents lectures from nationally noted legal scholars, and offers other such events. Unsurprisingly, Wooster graduates are successful gaining admission to law schools across the country, including some of the best schools in the nation.
