Our Pre-Law Program is designed to provide students with a firm foundation in writing, critical thinking, and analysis, as well as an introduction to legal terminology, research methods, and procedure in preparation for success in law school. We offer a Comprehensive Major in Political Science with Pre-Legal Emphasis (B.S.) and a Comprehensive Major in History with Pre-Legal Emphasis (B.S.) as our foundation Pre-Law degrees. However, we welcome participation by all other majors in our program events.
In addition to the degree plans, we offer a Mock Trial program for students interested in participating in intercollegiate mock trial competition. Students may enroll for credit or may participate on a non-credit basis.
We enjoy an excellent relationship with the MC School of Law, with many of our Pre-Law graduates choosing to undertake their legal education at MC - the only law school located in the state capital. Other MC Pre-Law students have been admitted to a wide variety of law schools, including Harvard, Vanderbilt, Tulane, Wake Forest, Arizona State, Arkansas, Louisiana State, Memphis, and Ole Miss.
