Pre-Law

IUPUI Pre-law science student“I’ve gained a lot from my experience at IUPUI, whether it was from my professors or my peers. I think much more differently than I did before I started school here. I’m passionate and focused on my goals, and I can identify the path I need to take to reach them.”

What is Pre-Law?

The School of Science does not offer a pre-law major because law  schools do not require students to complete specific majors. However, many majors in the School of Science at IUPUI provide students with excellent undergraduate preparation for veterinary school.

While fulfilling curriculum requirements for law school admission, students can create their own undergraduate path to a successful career in law.
