Pre-Law is an advising category for students preparing to enter a professional law school. Pre-law is not a major, and, therefore, does not grant students baccalaureate degrees. You can choose any major offered at Nebraska while still studying pre-law. Start your journey towards a law profession with the resources below, and then visit us in the Explore Center.
The Explore Center works with you to ensure that you are doing what you need to be successful in your goal of attending law school. Through the Explore Center, you can meet with representatives from law schools visiting from around the United States; identify courses that will enhance your reading comprehension, writing, analytical reasoning, and communication skills; take practice LSAT examinations; discuss extra-curricular activities that will prepare you for the legal profession; and receive guidance on your law school applications. If you're interested in being made aware of pre-law updates, announcements, curriculum information, events, and activities, please stop by the Explore Center so that we can fill out a pre-professional interest form and put you on our pre-law listserv.
