Pre-Law Group at Pitt-Greensburg

Our pre-law group consists of of faculty, staff, and students from several programs including:

  • • Political Science
  • • History
  • • Psychology
  • • Sociology
  • • Management
  • • Career Services
  • • Criminal Justice

Our group's goal is to prepare students interested in going on to law school. We do this through one-on-one advising, relevant course enrollment and planning, preparation for the Law School Admissions Tests (LSATs), the law school application process, and the expectations of rigorous law school programs.

Political Science; History; Public Policy; Criminal Justice; Sociology. These are among the most common majors of students seeking entry to law school. But law schools also look for candidates with a diversity of academic experiences. Some supplementary fields include Philosophy, Biological Sciences, Management, English, Sciences, Humanities, and beyond. Our campus offers courses related to

  • • the American legal and judicial systems
  • • constitutional law
  • • business law
  • • civil liberties
  • • political process
  • • public policy
  • • accounting
  • • forensic and legal psychology

and other aspects of the field of law.
