Converse believes the building blocks for a legal education is to take a broad range of challenging courses. We offer courses which cultivate critical reading, writing, oral communication, problem solving, and in-depth research. This unique blend of skills will have you well-prepared for the demands of law school.
Are you passionate about promoting justice, fairness and morality within the law? Do you want to help others with legal matters varying from wrongful convictions to malpractice, to consumer advocacy?
Consider the Pre-Law track at Converse. You’ll learn the skills of advocating, strategizing, problem-solving, writing, and of course, negotiating, and prepare to enter law school from any major.
The Pre-Law program is not a major, but rather, a collection of courses and advising program which will equip you for law school no matter what major you choose.
