Students who know that their next step is law school will benefit from Indiana Tech’s pre-law degree. The pre-law program at Indiana Tech is designed to prepare undergraduates to perform well on the Law School Admission Test and to prepare for the rigors of law school. Students will take a range of classes that encourage the same skills stressed in law school.
These skills as identified by the American Bar Association include:
- Analytic and problem-solving skills
- Critical reading abilities
- Writing skills
- Oral communication and listening abilities
- General research skills
- Task organization
- Management skills
Students will take classes in the areas of humanities, communications, business, and the social sciences to give them the range of knowledge needed to successfully become a lawyer. In these classes students will engage in debate, expository writing, and critical thinking exercises as a necessary component of the coursework.
Above and beyond
Students will be required to successfully complete at least seven honors classes to graduate from the program. Pre-law graduates will receive a pre-law B.S. and an honors diploma as a result of successfully passing the required honors courses. Students will not only have the skills to enter law school, they also will have the credentials that go above and beyond basic pre-law programs to separate them from other applicants.
