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.
