Are you interested in the possibility of attending law school after you complete your undergraduate degree here at the University of Minnesota? 

If so, you’re not alone.

Maybe your mind is already made up; law school is definitely in your future. Then again, maybe you don’t exactly understand what law school is all about, what it can prepare you for in terms of a future career, or whether you should actually go ahead and pursue the law school option…or not.

Once again, you’re not alone—either way!

We can help you figure things out, wherever you are in the law school exploration and decision-making process:

If you’re simply exploring law (and Pre-Law here at the U) at this point, but you don’t yet know if you’ll ultimately pursue it, check out:
