LAW PROFESSIONS ADVISORY PROGRAM

Hobart and William Smith offer extensive counseling for pre-law students throughout their undergraduate years. Almost any major offered through HWS can provide the skills and knowledge to prepare a student for law school, as long as it is supplemented with coursework in disciplines such as political science, economics, history, English or philosophy.

Pre-law Adviser and Professor of Philosophy Scott Brophy (Brophy@hws.edu) and members of the Career Services staff (cso@hws.edu) are available to help students plan and complete a course of study that will result in successful application to law school.

Distinguished HWS graduates (including federal and state judges, prosecutors, legislators, and other highly successful attorneys) play an active role in assisting students with their education and related internship experience.

Internship programs in Geneva, Boston, Washington D.C., Switzerland and New York City provide opportunities for educational experiences at worksites that include the U.S. Supreme Court, congressional and senatorial offices, the Federal Trade Commission, lobbying organizations and public interest groups.
