Pre-Law at UConn

To attend law school you can be any major you wish. There is no “perfect path” to law school. It is recommended that you take a logic or a problem solving course to help prepare you for the LSAT.

Tips and Recommendations

The number one tip for getting into law school is maintaining your GPA.

It is recommended that you take the LSAT in June of your Junior year. You can retake the test in September if need be. There are many practice exams available – be sure to study and take lots of practice tests in anticipation of the real test.

Taking courses in logic or problem solving can help prepare you for the content on the LSAT.

Examples: PHIL 1102: Philosophy and Logic, MATH 1020Q: Problem Solving

UConn offers workshops for students interested in law. There are workshops to assist with the personal statement, study for the LSAT, and prepare your application.

Meet with the Pre-Law advisor at least once a year. Appointments can be made via AdvApp.

Attend the pre-law events: there are low commitment options such as luncheons and speakers as well as the Law Society, Mock Trial, Moot Court, and internships that require more commitment.
