Act Justly, Love Mercy
“I added pre-law, because I felt there’s something more I can be doing as a social worker. My passion is advocacy and relationship, to be the voice for the voiceless, to be the person that has everyone’s back. If I can be their megaphone, it’s going to stretch and grow me as I do kingdom work.”
Major: Social Work, Pre-Law

Pursue a Legal Studies Minor

This minor offers legal externships as well as LSAT and law school admission preparation unique to the undergraduate experience. Learn to practice law by acting justly, loving mercy and walking humbly with God.
Gain real life experience that fits your career goals through a legal externship before you even begin law school. You’ll work closely with our pre-law advisor to determine your area of interest and locate a host. Guided through each step of the process, you can be confident you’re gaining the confidence to move forward successfully.
