Pre-Law Curriculum

The pre-law program at Drury is structured according to the recommendations from American Bar Association approved law schools. These recommendations include the following:

  1. Students should major in an academic subject that interests them. Law schools discourage any specific pre-law or legal studies major.
  2. Law schools seek students who excel in writing and speaking skills and who demonstrate ability to think analytically, logically and creatively.
  3. Law schools expect students in their undergraduate work to cultivate an understanding of the cultural underpinnings of the social and political environment in which the law operates. The Drury CORE program provides students the tools for such understanding.
