Build the foundation for your law career
USJ’s Pre-law program facilitates both admission and success in law school.
The University of Saint Joseph programs in the liberal arts and science provide excellent background for the student planning to enter the profession of law. The study and practice of law has such breadth and variety that almost no undergraduate field can be excluded as unsuitable. Some courses in the Social Sciences, those that develop skills in analysis of texts and in expository writing, and basic courses in Logic and Mathematics are clearly beneficial to the student.
