Pre-Law

Pre-Professional degrees offered in Traditional formats

Lindenwood University offers a pre-law program that will prepare you to pursue a juris doctor degree at an accredited law school.  

If you wish to attend law school, you can major in any undergraduate discipline. Law schools are interested in students who have a sound and broad general education. However, they seek students who are proficient at basic skills such as reading comprehension, critical thinking, writing competence, and oral communication.
