Pre-Law at Dickinson
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 into a comprehensive approach to pre-legal studies.
Pre-law advising and preparation include individual advising appointments, workshops and information sessions. The pre-law advisor handles the advising for any student or alumnus 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 school selection and assists students and alumni in completing their applications. And law-related workshops and information sessions sponsored by the Center for Advising, Internships & Lifelong Career Development 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 other related topics.
