Pre-Law Advising Program
Many people think that law schools are looking for students who have majored in "pre-law" at the undergraduate level. Generally, however, law schools are interested in students who have liberal arts backgrounds with majors in a variety of academic fields. Most Geneseo students who are interested in legal careers major in areas including English, history, or political science.
Regardless of your major, law schools admit students with strong academic records suggesting that students should strive to acheive solid academic performance from the very start of the their undergraduate studies.
The SUNY Geneseo pre-law program emphasizes an inter-disciplinary approach to undergraduate studies stressing critical thinking and the development of critical skills. It is recommended students interested in pre-law choose core courses which will teach you to read accurately, thoroughly, and rapidly; to speak and write clearly, persuasively, and accurately; to think precisely; and to analyze complex situations and concepts.
