About the Pre-Law Program

Drury University's strong liberal arts tradition is excellent preparation for the rigors of law school. Students who apply to law school with a demonstrated ability to think critically, write effectively and express themselves clearly are stronger candidates for success. Those desirable qualities are the foundations for a Drury education. Our pre-law program works closely with law schools to make sure students are aware of the skills they need to be accomplished attorneys and legal scholars.

The strength of a Drury education is also the basis of the Judge Ross T. Roberts Scholars Program, that guarantees admission to the University of Missouri Law School for students who meet specific academic standards.

In parallel with a student’s chosen major, the pre-law program concentrates on developing critical thinking and communication skills. Courses in philosophy, history, the social and behavioral sciences, languages and literature enrich one’s grasp of the foundations of law in society.
