At the UW, “pre-law” is not a major, minor or series of courses. Law schools require no prerequisite courses, nor do they prefer any particular majors. Pre-law refers to anyone who is considering going to law school after completing an undergraduate degree.

At the UW Career and Internship Center, Pre-Law Career Coaching can help students and alumni:
• Determine whether law school is the best fit for one’s professional goals
• Learn about law school and the different areas of legal practice
• Help with the application process
• Determine an action plan
• Explore the different jobs and careers in the field

30 min appointments are available for UW students and alumni. Schedule your Pre-Law Career Coaching appointment in Handshake. Appointments take place in the Career & Internship Center (134 Mary Gates Hall), by phone or online by request.
