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.
The Pre-Law track at Converse will cultivate your advocating, strategizing, problem-solving, writing, and negotiating skills in your first step towards law school.
Build the analytical and communication skills needed to succeed in law school within a liberal arts framework. You’ll learn to think strategically, problem-solve, and communicate confidently as you develop skills to promote justice, fairness and morality within the law.
The Pre-Law program is not a major, but rather, a collection of courses and advising programs which will equip you for law school no matter what major you choose.
