Pre-Law

DBU does not recommend specific Pre-Law courses. However, if a student is interested in learning more about the legal process, DBU offers a Minor in Legal Studies. The American Bar Association (ABA) states the following concerning preparation for law school:

Undergraduate Education

The ABA does not recommend any undergraduate majors or group of courses to prepare for a legal education. Students are admitted to law school from almost every academic discipline. You may choose to major in subjects that are considered to be traditional preparation for law school, such as history, English, philosophy, political science, economics or business, or you may focus your undergraduate studies in areas as diverse as art, music, science and mathematics, computer science, engineering, nursing or education. Whatever major you select, you are encouraged to pursue an area of study that interests and challenges you, while taking advantage of opportunities to develop your research and writing skills. Taking a broad range of difficult courses from demanding instructors is excellent preparation for legal education. A sound legal education will build upon and further refine the skills, values, and knowledge that you already possess.

Minimum GPA Required for Graduation from Dallas Baptist University
