Law school admission offices typically recruit and select students in all academic majors who possess strong critical reasoning and excellent communication skills. Through our General Education curriculum, Capital students receive a strong liberal arts background as recommended by the American Bar Association for admission to law school.
In addition to the curriculum, a major of your choice with some wisely chosen electives combined with considerable study and effort usually prepare pre-law students to do well on the LSAT (Law School Admissions Test). Internships, open houses and special preparation for taking law school entrance exams are just some of the ways Capital readies its undergraduates for the rigors of law school. Our location gives students in the Pre-Law program of Capital University the added benefits of internships and job opportunities in Ohio’s state capital and largest city.
Why is Capital a good fit for my pre-professional plan?
Choosing a pre-professional program and completing your plan does not guarantee admission into a professional program. We know that navigating through the first four years is challenging enough, so thinking about your post-degree plans can be mind-boggling.
At Capital, our professors are also your academic advisors. They are your mentors and biggest advocates.
With a 12:1 student-to-faculty ratio, Capital can enrich your studies with personal connections between you and our faculty, and we have several programs in place to ensure student success – from academic advising and career development to our peer-to-peer compass leaders who help you align your vocation with your career.
