Pre-Law at the University of Delaware

Image Picker for Section 0


Although there is no specific undergraduate pre-law major, or even a specific recommended major for the would-be lawyer, steps can and should be taken in preparation for a successful career in law. Forethought, dedication, and good advice can help make those plans solid.

If you believe you would like to be a lawyer, the links on the left provide some background information about the profession and law school that you should review. Then, in the middle of your junior year you should make an appointment to see one of the UD pre-law advisers listed below. And while you are thinking about pre-law, you may want to consider joining ​Phi Alpha Delta.

Finally, this is a guide designed for University of Delaware students, but readers should also consult the excellent resources available on the LSAC website, the company responsible for administering the LSAT. While you will necessarily consult this site often if you ultimately decide to apply to law school, you might begin with by perusing the informative section entitled Thinking About Law School.
