Carroll has an active law school preparation program open to all undergraduate majors. There is no single curriculum best suited for your preparation to law school. Law schools are looking for three main attributes from their applicants, which can be developed from any major you choose at Carroll. These attributes include analytical problem solving skills, critical reading ability, and effective communication in both written and verbal forms.
Admission to an American Bar Association accredited law school depends on academic success, an acceptable score on the LSAT (Law School Admissions Test), and extra-curricular activities. The Carroll Pre-Law Society is a student-run organization that meets monthly for social events, hosts on-campus interviews with regional law schools, sponsors law school visits and offers LSAT preparations courses for the December and June LSAT test dates.
Beyond a rigorous curriculum, Carroll offers extracurricular activities that help you prepare for law school or other graduate school work.
- Pre-law Society: student-run club plans guest speakers, social gatherings and field trips.
- Pre-law advisers: meet with Carroll's pre-law advisers for personal law school advice and to review updated materials from every law school in the nation, review the Official Directory to U.S. Law Schools, learn about the LSAT administration and take sample tests.
- Internships at local law firms and at the Waukesha County district attorney’s office provide students with real-world legal experience. Students can also participate in The Washington Center program, which includes a substantial internship on Capitol Hill, in federal agencies, or in non-profit or for-profit organizations. Students in the Washington Center program work 30 hours per week and enroll in a single course. They learn from prominent guest speakers from both the public and private sector.
- Mock trial: join Carroll University's Mock Trial Team. Under the leadership of a local attorney, Carroll's Mock Trial Team performed excellent work at a recent tournament and garnered seven top-ten finishes and more than $30,000 in law school scholarships.
