The Pre-Law concentration at Mount Aloysius College is designed to prepare students to compete successfully for admission to law school and to excel in the unique law school environment. With this focus in mind, the curriculum provides a foundation in the liberal arts, Criminology and court processes, ethics and the law.

Students will receive a bachelor’s degree in History/Political Science or Criminology with a concentration in Pre-Law.

You will benefit from a hands-on advantage in your pre-law education that includes a required off-campus internship. Focused on law school acceptance, our liberal arts curriculum allows students to incorporate traditional political science and American history studies with ethics and law.

Our extensive course selections teach graduates a foundation for all disciplines of law. A pre-law seminar focuses your preparation for the Law School Aptitude Test (LSAT). Students also have the choice of pursuing a Paralegal Certificate. The Certificate qualifies you to function in a variety of legal environments, including law offices, corporations, governmental agencies or other pursuits where a law background is vital.
