Course Overview

A well-rounded undergraduate education based in the liberal arts is the best foundation for students interested in attending law school. With its strong grounding in the humanities and social sciences, Chapman University has a long history of successfully preparing its undergraduates for law school and eventually a legal career. In recent years, Chapman graduates have attended such top-ranked law schools as the University of Chicago, University of California-Berkeley, University of Virginia, Cornell University, Georgetown University, UCLA, University of Southern California, and Vanderbilt University. No Single Path to Law School According to the American Bar Association, there is no single path that prepares students for law school. As such, the ABA does not recommend any particular major for undergraduates to pursue, since students are admitted to top law schools from every academic discipline. However, political science is one of the most common majors for pre-law students since it is based on the study of government, institutions, and the state, all of which relate directly to the law. Traditionally, other majors such as history, English, philosophy, economics and business are also regularly chosen by pre-law students nationwide. Pursue a Rigorous Academic Curriculum The Bachelor Pre-Law at Chapman University students are encouraged to pursue a rigorous academic curriculum that will develop strong research and writing skills, strong analytical and critical thinking skills, and strong communication skills, all of which will help in preparation for law school. In addition to a high grade point average and LSAT score, law school admissions committees also look for both rigor and depth within the major and breadth across the overall curriculum. While there is no required pre law curriculum that a student must take in preparation for law school, there are several recommended pre-law courses that Chapman students will find helpful as they prepare for their legal education.
