Drew’s Pre-Law program offers knowledgeable support and guidance to future lawyers
A PROGRAM THAT LETS YOU THRIVE
What looks great to a law school? During your four years at Drew, our faculty advisers will help you acquire every advantage you will need for admission. At Drew, pre-law is a goal, not a major. You will enjoy great flexibility as you match your interests with what law schools seek.
Constitutional Law, International Law, Civil Rights, Law, Politics and Society—these are just some of the relevant courses offered by our political science department. Sociology of Deviant Behavior and Crime in the Urban World are among the courses you can choose from in the sociology department.
Off-campus activities, such as field trips to local courts, police stations and New York City prisons supplement your classroom work.
Unsure about what courses to register for? Drew’s pre-law adviser will meet with you regardless of major to make the most of what the university offers.
LAW SCHOOL MADE EASY
take your pick
In the past five years, Drew alumni have enrolled in law schools, such as Georgetown, Harvard, Cornell, Northwestern, University of Pennsylvania, New York University and University of California–Berkeley.
Virtually any of Drew’s majors can serve as strong preparation for law school: the traditional fields of political science, economics, English and history, as well as any of a number of fields that require logical thinking and clear communication such as sociology, psychology, mathematics, philosophy or computer science.
Pre-law student internships are actively encouraged. Our location near New York City and mid-way between two New Jersey legal centers, Morristown and Roseland, offers prime professional assignments.
