Cornell College's liberal arts program, with its emphasis on educating students to read critically, reason effectively, and communicate clearly, has a history of preparing students to succeed in law school and as legal professionals. Consistent with the best advice of law schools themselves, Cornell has no formal "pre-law" major and no specific list of required courses. However, Cornell's Center for Law and Society offers a comprehensive set of resources to guide and prepare students for successful admission to law school and careers in the legal profession.
