First-years and sophomores are encouraged to meet with the faculty pre-law adviser early in their undergraduate careers. The pre-law adviser can assist students in thinking about courses and internships they might want to add to their four-year plan, with an eye toward making a decision about whether to pursue a law degree by the end of their junior year. The adviser can also provide students with general information about the law school admissions process, as well as discussing the law school experience and the legal marketplace. As the senior year approaches, the pre-law adviser can provide suggestions as to which law schools are most likely to admit students with particular academic records and LSAT scores. Most importantly, the pre-law adviser helps to overcome the myths that too often affect student thinking about law schools.
