Pre-Law Advisory Program

The mission of the Pre-Law Advisory Program is to prepare Robert Morris University graduates for a successful law school career.

Robert Morris University's Pre-Law Advisory Program is designed to educate, enlighten, and counsel students who desire to attend law school or explore career opportunities in the legal profession. A highlight of the Pre-Law Advisory Program is the Pre-Law Society, a student-driven organization providing information, counseling, and various programs of interest to assist students in learning more about the law.

Consistent with the recommendations of the American Bar Association and the Association of American Law Schools, RMU offers a Pre-Law Advisory Program that focuses on advising, mentoring, and directed course study. As these organizations suggest, RMU undergraduates interested in the law develop certain skills, values, and basic areas of knowledge essential to the study of law.

Students involved in the Pre-Law Advisory Program are advised and mentored by faculty members, attorneys, and law students. Students are encouraged to develop mastery of the skills law schools value most, such as Analysis and Problem Solving, Critical Reading, Writing, Oral Communication, Listening, and General Research Skills.
