College of Business & Information Systems Pre-Professional Programs

Pre Law
Pre Law advisement is available to students who wish to pursue a career in law. Opportunities exist for lawyers to serve business, government, and individuals in diverse areas of law including: corporate, tax, patent, wills, trusts, probate, family, environmental, tort, and criminal law. There is no prescribed major or curriculum for pre law students. Successful attorneys come from varied educational backgrounds. Some of the appropriate majors at DSU are Business Administration, English for Information Systems, the Sciences and Education. Therefore, pre law students should major in whatever field interests them. Law school admission standards generally require a high grade point average and a high score on the Law School Admissions Test. Law schools may also consider other qualifications and factors during the admissions process. Students are advised to consult the Official Guide to U.S. Law Schools and the pre law advisor for more information. For pre law advisement contact Professor Richard Puetz in the College of Business and Information Systems.
