About Pre-Law

As a law school candidate you will be expected to analyze, write, and effectively present thoughts orally and exhibit a high level of competence in the English language. You will have taken courses that deal with the history and structure of the American courts and government, the complexities of the American economy and society, and the broad cultural background of our times. You can consider a major connected to your potential law specialization, but there is no "required" or "preferred" pre-law major. Many pre-law students at Rutgers choose majors in:

  • English
  • Political Science
  • Criminal Justice
  • History
  • Philosophy
  • Economics
  • Anthropology
  • Business
  • Environmental Policy
