Program Overview

Pre-Law at Bryant

The competition to go to law school can be intense. The American Bar Association does not recommend any specific undergraduate major or group of courses to prepare for a legal education. In fact, students are admitted to law school from almost every academic discipline, which means Bryant students can choose from the wide range of academic programs in the College of Arts and Sciences or the College of Business.

As a student, you will build a strong academic record in a subject that interests you. You will also benefit from the University's small class sizes and develop relationships with faculty who can write strong letters of recommendation on your behalf.

Taking a broad range of difficult courses from demanding instructors is excellent preparation for legal education. The diverse curriculum of liberal arts and business classes exposes you to a greater array of ideas than many of your peers, which helps you stand out from others in a law school applicant pool.

Although the Pre-Law area of interest is geared toward preparing students for law school, you will also be prepared to enter careers in law enforcement, state and local government, and court administration, among others.

Cross-Disciplinary Advantage

  • A strong liberal arts foundation develops critical thinking and communication skills essential for success and continuous growth in every field.
  • Your business minor will be a competitive advantage that highlights the acumen and problem-solving abilities cultivated through real-world projects
  • Whether you pursue grad school or begin a career after graduation, the credentials of your major and minor distinguish you.
