The Association of American Law Schools has emphasized that no single major or individual group of courses provides a secret key to preparation for law school. Students should major in a field that is intellectually challenging and that will develop:

  • Comprehension and expression in words.
  • Critical understanding of the human institutions and values with which the law deals.
  • Creative power and thinking.

Students can choose from traditional pre-law majors such as political science or English, or start in a major of their interest and still continue on to law school. To speak to an academic advisor about pre-law preparation, contact Dr. Wesley Leckrone, Pre-Law Advisor at 610-499-4663.

The program of study that appears here applies to students who were admitted for the summer session of this catalog year and later.  Students admitted prior to that term should select the appropriate catalog year of their admission.  Choose previous catalogs from the Home, Graduate, or Undergraduate Catalog Page at http://Catalog.widener.edu.
