At the University of Illinois, pre-law is not a major, but rather an educational designation. Students interested in attending law school are not required to complete any specific coursework or major to be eligible to apply to law school in the future. The over 1,500 designated pre-law students at UIUC come from a wide variety of disciplines and majors. Pre-law students are encouraged to make curricular choices that reflect their interests and are best suited for their long-term success.
PLAS offers guidance to students each semester in choosing majors and courses that will help support their goals of law school and their individual interests. Any student with an interest in attending law school is encouraged to become a pre-law designated student!
