A career in law calls for decisiveness, strategic thinking, and powerful communication—the very skills you'll develop through Quincy University's Pre-Law Concentration.
The Pre-Law Concentration is offered within the History and Political Science majors; but students in any other major may also earn a Pre-Law Concentration and participate in the program's activities. Political science faculty serve as coordinators of a series of courses and practica focusing on constitutional, civil, international, and criminal legal issues. The curriculum is designed to prepare you for advanced study in law school.
Quincy professors, alumni, and members of the area legal community devote time and expertise to the concentration, offering you unrivaled access to their assistance in prepping for the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT), exploring internships, obtaining a great recommendation for law school, and planning a satisfying career.
Quincy's nationally recognized Mock Trial Team will sharpen your competitive edge as you try cases against teams from such schools as Washington University, Vanderbilt University, Loyola University, the Air Force Academy, and University of Illinois. Our team has advanced to the national tournament in seven of its first 10 years of competition, earning team and individual accolades in regional contests. Area judges and attorneys join the faculty in coaching the squad, which hosts its own Riverside Classic Tournament each year. Enhancing the preparation for our Pre-Law and Mock Trial students, Quincy University is home to a Mock Trial Courtroom (the "John 'Pete' Brown Courtroom") which opened in 2012.
