Pre-Law


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs

While there are no specific courses required for entrance into professional schools of law, many of them do recommend that the student complete six hours of accounting in the undergraduate program. Most law schools recommend that the student complete a bachelor’s degree before seeking admission to the school of law, but some still admit students with less than a bachelor’s degree. The normal requirement in such cases is the completion of approximately three-quarters of the work required at the undergraduate institution for a bachelor’s degree, with the right reserved by the dean of the particular law school to refuse admission to students whose pre-law work does not qualify them for the study of law.

It is strongly recommended that the pre-law student confer periodically with one of the pre-legal advisors at Northeastern. Principal academic advisement, however, should be the responsibility of the major advisor.
