Dickinson has a long history of sending its graduates to some of the most prestigious law schools in the nation. Law school admissions committees agree that the most appropriate and beneficial preparation for law school is a traditional liberal arts education combined with relevant extracurricular experiences. Coordinated by the Career Center, pre-law advising at Dickinson incorporates these elements in a comprehensive approach to pre-legal studies.


Pre-Law advising and preparation includes individual advising appointments, workshops, and information sessions. The Pre-Law Advisor, located in the Career Center, handles the advising for any student or alum interested in the study of law. The Pre-Law advisor helps students and alumni with their decision to go to law school, provides guidance in their school selection, and assists students and alumni in the completion of their applications. The law related workshops and information sessions that are sponsored by the Career Center provide information on the law school application process and undergraduate pre-law preparation, what to expect at law school, legal specialty areas, and pursuing a career in the legal system, among others.
