Many students from the Political Science department as well as other departments make plans during their time at Gordon to pursue careers in law. Following the recommendations of the American Bar Association and the leading law schools, Gordon does not offer a pre-law major but rather encourages broad, rigorous preparation in the liberal arts.
The Pre-Law Minor at Gordon includes courses that develop the skills necessary for success in law school and beyond, including introductions to the philosophy of law, constitutional law, and background in formal logic and economics. A student from any of Gordon’s majors can complete the Pre-Law minor.
Your pre-law minor advisor will work with you to help you with respect to selection of appropriate law schools and opportunities open to law school graduates. Contact Dr. Timothy R. Sherratt, Department of Political Science, or Dr. Robert Joss, Department of Psychology for more information.
Four additional credits determined in consultation with a prelaw advisor. Possible
