NAPLA Pre-Law Guide

The National Association of Pre-Law Advisors (NAPLA) has prepared the Pre-Law Guide for those considering the legal profession, for undergraduates preparing for legal study, and for candidates applying to law school. The Guide is designed to help at each stage by providing accurate and up-to-date information.   

For a step-by-step guide to law school admissions, view the Pre-Law Guide.

The NAPLA Pre-Law Guide is based on Cornell University's Legal Careers Guide, which was used by permission of Cornell Career Services. NAPLA would like to acknowledge the following schools for their contributions to the Guide: Binghamton University, Boston College, Boston University, Bucknell University, Columbia University, Duke University, Northeastern University, Princeton University, and Texas A & M University. The Law School Admission Council provided information on study abroad transcripts, and the Financial Aid section is based on the "Financial Aid Toolkit" developed by the Pre-Law Advisors National Council (PLANC).

If you are interested in eventually applying to law school, be sure to contact Jim Bear or Dr. Houghton Kane, Co-Chairs of Pre-Legal Studies at Ursinus. They will be happy to work with you and discuss ideas for potential majors based on your interests, skills, and career goals.  As well as the courses required for law school admission.
