Pre-Law Program Process
The Stetson Pre-Law Program is a Step-By-Step Process. For optimal success, follow the process below in order.
Step 1: Curriculum and GPA
Choose your major.
Consider these important classes.
Consider a business law minor as an option for strong training in law matters. Being a business school major is not a pre-requisite to taking a business law minor class!
Again, no matter what major/minor you choose, remember to get your grade point average as high as possible!
Step 2: High LSAT Score Is Important
A high score on the LSAT is a must for acceptance/scholarship at a great law school.
When should you take the LSAT?
Check out our list of courses at Stetson that help prepare for LSAT and other pre-law recommended classes.
Some LSAT prep companies are better than others. See the Pre-Law Program Chair Dr. Sven Smith or another prelaw advisor for suggestions of good preparation.
Use sites such as https://lsatdemon.com/scholarships to help with the scholarship process.
Step 4: Advising, Internships and Other Opportunities
Choose and notify your pre-law advisor to gain advice of what kind of attorney you should be, where should you go to law school, which of the recommended courses are best for you, and for further advice on other opportunities related to law.
Look for and apply for legal internships.
Other opportunities include working at our mock trial camp.
