FAQs: Pre-Law at Belhaven

No. It’s a program designed to help you gain ​​admission to and achieve success in law school. You pick your desired major and work with a faculty advisor throughout your time at Belhaven. This advisor recommends specific courses and provides one-on-one mentoring to help you achieve your goals.

Our most frequent recommendations for majors are​​ political science or history. These majors are recommended because they help you achieve success in law school. They build excellent communication, reading, and writing skills, and they also develop your analytical abilities. Plus, they help you understand complex economic and political institutions.

If you choose political​​ science as your major, we recommend you select history as your minor (and vice versa). Otherwise, consider a minor that will strengthen your professional skills or specialization, such as communications, English, philosophy, or public relations.

You work closely with a caring faculty advisor who knows law schools and their admission processes. This advisor helps you:

  • Build your class schedule
  • Write your resume
  • Complete your law school application materials
  • Prepare for your law school admission interview
  • Get ready for the Law School Admission Test (LSAT)​​
