Hamline University provides solid academic preparation and an enriched learning environment for pre-law students. Prospective law students can major in any field. Law schools want students with a broad-based education. Law schools expect students to have highly developed reading, analyzing, writing, and speaking skills. Law firms want lawyers and paralegals who are diligent, well-educated, and motivated, and who can work independently. Faculty members of the Legal Studies Department hold JD degrees and practice or have practiced law. They serve as an advising resource to students of any major who are interested in pursuing careers as lawyers or applying to law school.
Law schools attended by Hamline graduates over the last five years:
American University (Washington DC)Columbia University (NYC)Hamline University Santa Clara University (CA)Seattle UniversityUniversity of MinnesotaUniversity of VermontWashington University (St. Louis, MO)William Mitchell College of Law (MN)
Pre-law students of any major can participate in Hamline’s successful mock trial program, and they have the opportunity be active in the Hamline Pre-Law and Justice Society.
For certain highly-motivated, high-achieving students, Hamline University offers a Law School Early Admission (“LSEA” or “3-3”) program in conjunction with the Hamline University School of Law.
Law School Admission Students
thinking of attending law school are invited to join the Hamline Law Students
Mentoring Association, a partnership between undergraduate students and current
law students at Hamline School of Law. The program pairs undergraduate students
with a law student mentor to learn more about what law school is like, and
hosts several events each year. Undergraduate students need not be pre-law
students (first-years and undecided majors are welcome!). To find out more,
contact Madina Ameerally.
For questions on the pre-law program, contact Professor Stephen Arnott.
