Loras can help you prepare adequately for a legal education, and for a career in law. According to the American Bar Association, there are important skills and values, and significant bodies of knowledge that you can acquire prior to law school and that will provide a sound foundation for a legal education. These include analytic and problem-solving skills, critical reading abilities, writing skills, oral communication and listening abilities, general research skills, task organization and management skills, and the values of serving faithfully the interests of others while also promoting justice. Loras offers educational, extra-curricular and life experiences that will assist you in developing those attributes.

For students that want to take an undergraduate law course, there are a variety of classes in several different majors such as Constitutional Law, Communication Law, Criminal Law, Business Law, Sports Law, and School Law.   There are three intercollegiate academic programs that Loras sponsors that support pre-law education and a student organization open to all majors.

Mary Lynn Neuhaus, J.D., serves as pre-law advisor assisting students in academic coursework selection, registering for the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) in summer of the junior year or fall of the senior year and selecting law schools for possible attendance.
