Many AUR students are interested in pursuing a career in the law after they finish their degrees, and we want to help you achieve that goal.

Perhaps surprisingly, for some, there is no fixed pre-law curriculum. Law schools accept applicants across the full spectrum of majors, from Fine Arts to International Relations. They certainly like to see strength in the area of your major and a good breadth of other courses.

Remember your resume, which will show your non-academic work and activities. Law schools are interested in the whole person and like to see a commitment to interests and passions.
