Bachelor of Science in Pre-Law

Albertus students interested in the legal profession are assigned to the pre-law academic advisor. Law covers all facets of human activity and the lawyer must be a person with a wide range of interests and a broad base of knowledge. There are no college courses specified by law schools as entrance requirements. Instead, law schools recommend the candidates for entrance prepare themselves in the following ways:

  1. By taking several courses which train the mind to think logically and accurately and develop a concern for precision; such courses include foreign language, grammar, logic, and philosophy.
  2. By acquiring an excellent command of the English language and writing skills.
  3. By developing an understanding of human institutions, how they function, and how they change. Introductory and advanced courses in history and political science will prepare students in this area.
