Students in a Course

Class Recommendations

Legal education programs do not recommend any undergraduate majors or group of courses as prerequisites. Students can be admitted to law school without any specific major! At UNCW, we encourage students to choose a major that will challenge you and reflect your interests so that you can excel academically. Oftentimes, taking a broad range of difficult courses can be the best preparation for law school.

According to the Statement on Pre-Law Preparation by the Pre-Law Committee of the ABA Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar, the following are important skills and values that can provide a solid foundation for law school coursework:

The following courses at UNCW may provide knowledge or skills that will be useful for law school and admissions tests.
