Department of Pre-Law Program

Pre-Law Program

Unlike premedical programs, which are quite specific and virtually obligatory for medical school candidates, prelaw "curriculum" is largely a myth. While no particular curriculum path is the ideal route to law school, Simmons' strong academic programs, small classes, and extensive opportunities for student/professor interaction and independent learning are an ideal preparation.

A student who is considering law school after graduation should register with the prelaw advisor as soon as possible using the online registration form. At some point, she should make an appointment with the advisor to discuss specific interests and plans. The prelaw advisor organizes extra-curricular activities of interest to prelaw students: lectures, meetings with lawyers who are Simmons alumnae, and field studies or internships related to law. The advisor is also available to help with the application process.
