This site will explain the pre-law track at Cleveland State University and what is to
be expected at each phase. An enriching undergraduate experience at CSU is the first step in your journey to becoming a professional in the legal field.
CSU is also fortunate to have our own law school, the CSU College of Law. The College of Law offers several academic programs including the Juris Doctorate (JD), Master of Laws (LLM), and Master of Legal Studies (MLS).
The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) has additional information about other JD, master’s and certificate programs, the application process, and the LSAT.
The American Bar Association can provide information on enrollment information, Bar passage statistics, employment statistics, and much more.
Law schools do not require applicants have a specific major because the essential skills of acquiring, synthesizing, applying and communicating information can be acquired through a wide variety of studies. Pre-Law students at CSU are encouraged to follow their natural interests and curiosity when selecting a major. Additionally, CSU offers a Pre-Law track that students are encouraged to add to their major on CampusNet, which allows academic advisors to assist in course planning and Career Development & Exploration to assist in career planning. Students are also encouraged to review recommended courses early for other schools they might be interested in applying to.
