"Pre-Law" is not a major at John Brown University. Current trends indicate that law schools are not looking for Pre-Law majors but, instead, are looking for students who have successfully completed a rigorous liberal arts program of study and who can perform well on the LSAT. For that reason, we believe John Brown University's Pre-Law Program prepares our students well for the competitive law school admissions process.

The purpose of the Pre-Law Program is to assist students in developing the skills and knowledge necessary for active intellectual engagement in the first year of law school. The Pre-Law Program also seeks to assist students as they explore their interest in various areas within the legal profession. To meet these goals, the Pre-Law Program consists of the following components:

  • The Pre-Law Minor, which can be taken in conjunction with a major of the student's choice, as a way to develop the verbal, written, and analytical skills necessary for law school while maintaining academic rigor in their chosen major.
  • The support of the Pre-Law Program Adviser, a professor who is familiar with the terrain of the legal profession and the law school admissions process.
  • Availability of mock LSAT tests and study groups made up of fellow students.
  • An introduction to the integration of faith and the legal profession, exposure to practicing legal professionals, and discussion of contemporary issues in law through Pre-Law dinners, gatherings, and book clubs.   
  • Exposure to the law through JBU's Law, Courts, and Politics, Constitutional Law, Media Law and Digital Ethics, Family Law and Society, and/or Business Law and Ethics courses.
