Registration for Spring 2021 is here! Every semester around this time, our office hears from students asking for course suggestions. Students in ANY major can attend law school, and there are NO specifically required courses for pre-law undergrads. Law schools do not require any particular major or coursework. However, given an interest in law, we have compiled a list of suggested spring courses that pre-law students may find particularly helpful and interesting. To review a handy chart version of suggested Spring 2021 course options, please click here.
Be sure to keep in mind…
- This is not an exhaustive list. How did we pick them? We’ve simply chosen a selection of courses that build skills law schools like to see and/or cover topics of interest to many pre-law students.
- These courses are only suggestions and are NOT requirements. For some additional information about course planning, check out the “Selecting Pre-Law Coursework” blog post for an overview of pre-law course planning and practical tips about planning your schedule.
- Some of these courses have prerequisites or may be restricted to students in the same department; check Course Explorer and speak to your academic advisor about the best individual courses for you. We are always here to help as well!
