Pre-Law Advising Program

The Pre-Law Advising Program at Elizabethtown College is neither a major nor a prescribed set of courses or cocurricular activities for students who are interested in law and law-related fields. Instead, the Pre-Law Program seeks to emphasize the skills necessary for students in any major to attain success in future legal studies. Because the skills necessary for a law or law-related career can be accomplished in almost any academic discipline – such as English, history, political science, philosophy, or business – a committee has been established comprises members from several academic departments to assist pre-law students during their undergraduate years.
