"At his best, man is the noblest of all animals; separated from law and justice he is the worst." - Aristotle

Carroll’s pre-law program combines academic advisement and extracurricular activities to prepare students for the rigors of law school and introduce them to the legal profession.

Advising: All pre-law students receive individual advising sessions with a pre-law academic advisor. These one-on-one meetings ensure students stay on track in terms of academic performance, progress toward graduation and application to law school.

Seminars and Workshops: Carroll’s pre-law program offers seminars and workshops to familiarize students with the law school admissions process, prepare them for the LSAT and provide chances to meet with admissions staff from area law schools. Students are introduced to the legal profession through job shadowing or mentoring opportunities.

Course work: Carroll offers several courses that introduce legal topics or prove useful in preparing for the LSAT. These include:

  • BUS 290 Principles of Business Law
  • BUS 310 Employment and Labor Law
  • POL 321 International Law
  • POL 333 Constitutional Law
  • PHI 105 Introduction to Logic

Student Success: Carroll students have recently matriculated at the following law schools:

Drake University Marquette University
University of Wisconsin Valparaiso University
University of Northern Illinois Washburn University
Ohio State University Hamline University
University of Southern Illinois University of Wyoming
DePaul University St. John’s University (NY)

Extracurricular Activities: Carroll’s award-winning mock trial team hones students’ communication skills, knowledge of rule of evidence and familiarity with civil procedure. It competes against other universities and colleges in organized competitions throughout the school year. Carroll's mock trial team has distinguished itself at recent tournaments, garnering several top-ten finishes and winning more than $30,000 in law school scholarships.
