Pre-Law Programs

In accordance with recommendations from the Association of American Law Schools, Midland recognizes that the best preparation for law school is a general liberal arts education. Therefore, the Pre-Law Program is designed to allow the student intending to enter law school flexibility to study in areas of greatest interest to the student while developing those skills necessary to prepare the student for the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT), required for admission into most law schools, and to be successful in future studies and a law career.

Students work closely with their advisor to create a program of study, which will provide the student with a broad foundation in the liberal arts, as well as the opportunity to develop particular skills necessary for training in the law. Every pre-law student’s individualized program of study aims toward the following objectives recommended by the Association of American Law Schools:
●       Development of both written and oral communication skills, including facility in comprehension and expression of the English language;
●       Acquisition of a thorough, critical understanding of human institutions and values; and
●       Development of creative, critical, and analytical thinking skills.
