Pre-Law Advising in the Arts and Sciences Honors Program

The pre-law program at Ohio State offers personalized academic counseling; a pre-law listserv and web site; workshops on law school preparation and the application process; law school admission fairs; a study abroad program in Oxford, England; a pre-law club for students; and more.

Law school is a three-year professional program that requires the completion of an undergraduate degree prior to enrollment. Students interested in law may choose any undergraduate major, and there are no required prerequisite courses for law school. Admission to law schools is very competitive; a pre-law advisor can help you select a strong undergraduate curriculum to assist you in reaching your potential as a candidate for admission to law school.

For more information, see the College of Arts and Sciences Pre-Law web site.
