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, advisors 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.
