The purpose of Pre-Law Counseling at Lehigh is to facilitate, for both students and alumni, exploration of an interest in a legal career and provide support for application to law schools. As a premier research university with a strong liberal arts focus, Lehigh is an ideal setting in which to prepare to enter the legal profession. Students experience Lehigh’s excellent teaching, innovative research, and dedication to leadership and service. Lehigh’s accomplished faculty are committed to connecting with students and guiding them as they achieve those skills necessary to succeed in law school. We encourage students to discuss their interests with faculty, individuals already engaged in the legal field, and the Pre-Professional Counselor to determine if a legal career will suit them and, if so, to assess their situation and prepare for it.
