Pre-Law

At Baylor, Pre-Law is a track that can go alongside any major. By declaring Pre-Law, the students' academic advisors will be able to help them make informed decisions about courses that will help prepare them for the LSAT and for law school. GPA is the most important aspect of the application process, therefore selecting a rigorous major in which the student can succeed is very important. Often students choose to enroll in the Honors College to ensure adequate academic preparation.

Some majors have special degree plans geared toward students planning on attending law school such as Philosophy and Economics. The Political Science major also works closely with Pre-Law students as many of the required courses for a Political Science degree include topics related to the practice of law.

Planning for law school should begin as early as possible. Ideally, students will begin preparing their freshman year and work closely with their academic advisor. Baylor offers a number of resources to assist students with the planning process, including the student Pre-Law Guidebook.

Phi Alpha Delta is a student-led organization open to all students interested in a career in law. The purpose of the organization is to determine whether or not law school or a job in the legal career is right for them. The organization hosts LSAT prep events and invites speakers from a variety of fields to speak at meetings (past speakers have included district attorneys and prep course instructors).

The Baylor Law School is a large resource available to all Pre-Law undergraduate students. Each year they host several events that prepare students for the LSAT and the law school application process, such as pre-law boot camp, and Mock Trial competitions in which undergraduates can volunteer and gain experience.
