Pre-law

Prepare for Law School

Want to pursue law as your career? Dakota Wesleyan recommends history, communication, political science and economics as minors for you, our pre-law student. Gain critical and collaborative thinking skills, effective expression, cultural and global awareness, civic values and personal growth and maturity.

Did you know? The Association of American Law Schools (AALS) does not outline certain courses or co-curricular activities for students planning to study law because of the wide range of relevant pre-law preparation.

Be Ready for the LSAT

Most law schools require applicants to take a standardized Law School Admission Test. This test is administered on several specific dates each year. If you’re interested in law as a profession, you should contact your adviser for advice on which major will best suit you and how to prepare for the LSAT.

Get to Know Your Professors

Be prepared for the rigors of law school. Our low student-to-teacher ratio offers valuable one-on-one interaction with professors.
