SUNY Poly believes that students obtain the best preparation for law school by enrolling in challenging academic programs that provide rigorous study. This belief is supported by the Law School Admissions Council (LSAC), which recommends that a specialized pre-law curriculum is neither advisable nor advantageous for students who wish to attend law school. The LSAC suggests that students pursue academic programs that lead to disciplined habits of study and that provide students with strong reasoning and communication skills. Because no one curriculum provides better preparation than any other, we encourage students to select a major based on their interests and aptitudes.
Faculty are available to counsel students on course selection. SUNY Poly provides a resource library and other pertinent materials to assist in the law school application process.
Students interested in attending law school after completing their baccalaureate degree studies should notify their academic advisor and Career Services.
