Pre-Law

“The best preparation for the study of law is a broad liberal arts education, calculated to provide a critical understanding of the institutions and values with which law deals.”

- American Bar Association, "Careers in Law" publication


A bachelor’s degree from Texas Lutheran satisfies the educational admission requirements of law schools. Our pre-law students usually major in political science, economics, English, accounting or history; however, any major at Texas Lutheran satisfies law school admission requirements. Leaders of the bench and bar also have recommended courses which they consider most valuable for preparation for the study of law. Subjects strongly recommended include philosophy and logic, political science, economics, creative and technical writing, literature, sociology, psychology, mathematics, accounting, and British and American history. Students should confer with the pre-law advisor to develop academic plans.
