• Pre-Law

    Hamline provides a unique combination of opportunities for students interested in attending law school. Our Legal Studies Department offers a major, minor, an American Bar Association-approved paralegal certificate, and a Master in the Study of Law all of which provide students with a strong foundation for pursuing further study in law. We also have a nationally competitive mock-trial program and many other opportunities for students to learn through doing, including service-learning and internships. Law schools want students with strong writing, speaking, and problem-solving skills, which students develop throughout all of our undergraduate programs. 

    For questions about Hamline's pre-law resources, contact Professor Stephen Arnott at 651-523-2582 or email to sarnott01@hamline.edu.
