Associate in Science or Associate in Arts Degree

A baccalaureate degree from an accredited college and a satisfactory score on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) is required for admission to most law schools. Applications or admissions are evaluated on several criteria, including undergraduate grade-point average and score on the LSAT. Most law schools have no specific requirements with regard to the courses chosen in pre-legal study.

Students are encouraged to choose fields in which they have demonstrated interests and abilities. Common majors among pre-law students include business, history, political science, psychology, and sociology. These subject areas help to develop the fundamental skills of thinking, comprehension, and expression. Proficiency or these skills is considered essential for a career in law.

After selecting their major, students are advised to refer to that section of the Rend Lake College catalog and follow the guidelines for that particular two-year transfer program.
