Outstanding Writing and Presentation Skills
One reason graduates say they are well prepared for law school is Concordia’s commitment to writing. Another is its emphasis on developing presentation skills. Law professors value students who can write with clarity – and those who can perform on their feet as well as in their seat.
Law schools will primarily look at your grade point average and Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) scores for admission. A major in political science is not necessary. For best results, select a challenging major, keep up your grades and take advantage of our pre-law program offerings.
Many students find courses in philosophy, economics and constitutional law to be helpful. Also, law schools are increasingly interested in students who demonstrate a fluency in a world language, those who have lived and studied abroad and those who have strong science backgrounds.
To make sure you’re meeting requirements for law school and to increase your chances of success, stay in touch with one of our advisors. They’re eager to discuss your academic plans and goals.
