The pre-law program at the University of the Incarnate Word is designed to introduce students to the study of law, to encourage student engagement with the legal profession, and to prepare students for the law school admission process.
Students from any major may consider applying to law school upon graduation. The Department of Government and International offers a series of public law courses to assist students considering law as a career. For students majoring or minoring in Government, these courses can be taken to count for the American Politics concentration; for students in other majors, these courses can be taken as a Pre-Law Concentration.
