·Individual appointments with a pre-law advisor

·Access to admission – related materials

·Help with the law-school application process

1.Analytic / Problem Solving Skills

2.Critical Reading

3.Writing Skills

4.Oral communication / Listening Abilities

5.General Research Skills

6.Task Organization / Management Skills

7.Public Service and Promotion of Justice

There are many opportunities to take writing and research intensive courses at Kansas Wesleyan University, regardless of your major. Students interested in law as a career are encouraged to contact the pre-law advisor as early as possible so they can create a course plan that best meets their individual needs and participate in pre-law activities and listserv.
