Developing the appropriate skills and knowledge for law school and future law practice can come from a variety of sources, and an interdisciplinary and liberal arts background is useful in building necessary analytical thinking, research and writing skills. The Pre-Law program at HWS provides extensive counseling for pre-law students throughout their undergraduate years as well as assistance with the law school application process.
