If you’re interested in pre-law, Clemson provides access to specialized advising and programming aimed at helping you explore the legal field, navigate the law school application process and prepare for law school expectations.
Law schools do not require a particular undergraduate major for entrance; they emphasize academic performance in whichever curriculum you choose in addition to other required components of the law school application. That’s why Clemson’s pre-law programming is focused on helping you find your best-fit major and providing opportunities to develop skills in critical thinking, reading, writing and oral communication.
