Law Preparatory Program


Denise Farag, J.D.

A law degree does not limit one to the practice of law – it provides excellent preparation for careers in business, government, and education as well. Students interested in law should develop skills in reading, writing, research, and analytical thinking.

There is no prescribed pre-law curriculum or major. Students are admitted to law school from almost every academic discipline, from the more traditional pathways (history, English, philosophy, political science, economics, or business) to the more diverse (art, music, science, mathematics, nursing, and education). Students should plan to major in a discipline that they enjoy and will challenge them. Many of Linfield’s law-related course offerings are listed in the Law, Rights, and Justice section of this catalog.
