Pre-Professional Program - Pre-Law

Administrator: Dr. Stephen Shaw

The Association of American Law Schools recommends no prescribed pre-law program but suggests that students pursue work in courses that require disciplined and logical thought and clear and careful communication, especially lucid writing. NNU's rigorous liberal arts education is ideal training for law school and the legal profession; any liberal arts major is excellent preparation, but students may find programs in economics, history, literature, mathematics, philosophy, political science, psychology, science, and sociology quite relevant. Students should note that the precise use of English is increasingly stressed in the Law School Aptitude Test (LSAT). The pre-law advisor, Dr. Stephen Shaw of the Department of History and Political Science, actively assists students in preparing for law school. Recent graduates have attended law schools throughout the United States.
