Pre-Law Thematic Minor
The Pre-Law Thematic Minor (PLW) is designed to help you prepare for a career in law. Through the courses in this minor, you will have the opportunity to research topics, analyze information, and think critically, which are all crucial skills for law school. Instead of focusing on one discipline, the minor pulls from the strengths of different colleges across campus. You will have the option to select from a variety of disciplines including Classics, English, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology. These courses are not mandatory for law school admission but are recommended if you do not have a strong interest in another minor area. Please note that declaring the Pre-Law minor does not guarantee access to courses and enrollment policies are set by the offering department.
If you wish to declare the Pre-Law minor you can do so by meeting with the Pre-Law advisor.
The Pre-Law Thematic Minor (PLW) requires 18 units; 12 of these units must be upper division (300-400 level). A 2.00 grade point average (GPA) is required for all university credit work in the minor.
